Lofting Instructions

The lifestyles of students today requires more options and versatility. That’s why our furniture allows students more living space and greater flexibility. Lofts are a great way to maximize the space in your room and to create a more unique living space for you and your roommate. By lofting, bunking, or trundling, the options are endless and no tools are required. All furniture is movable and loftable in freshman living centers. Please, for safety reasons, no new construction of lofts is permitted.

Students are encouraged to arrange the furniture provided by the University in order to personalize their living area. Establishing a mutually agreed upon plan by both roommates is suggested. Each student will have a bed with safety rail (twin extra-long mattress), three-drawer dresser, bookshelf, desk, organizer, desk chair, and wardrobe.

The furniture in the following living centers/apartments can not be lofted: Niemeyer East/West, and South C/D/E.
