Loft Rental & Bunking Requests

Information below is for the 2023-2024 academic year and will be updated in Summer 2024 for the 2024-2024 academic year. 


Many of our buildings have loftable beds (raised bed with space under bedframe), including: 626 Emerson (PMA), 636 Emerson, 640 Emerson, 710 Emerson, 720 Emerson (SAI), 2307 Sheridan, 2313 Sheridan, 2335 Sheridan (SNH), Allison, Ayers, Bobb-McCulloch, East Fairchild, Elder, Foster-Walker, Jones, Kemper, Shepard, Slivka, Willard, and West Fairchild.

The cost to loft a bed is $100, and it will be added to your Student Account upon completion of the request. Beds can also be bunked (one bed on top of another) and both roommates submit a request to bunk their beds. Each roommate is assessed a $50 bunk fee. If a student cancels the request or later decides to have the bed unlofted, the fee will not be refunded if the work has already been completed to loft or bunk the bed.

Lofted beds come with guard rails. If you are missing a guard rail, please submit a maintenance request to have them added.  

The standard set height for beds is 22" from the floor to the lower underside from of the bed and the lofted height is 54.25" from floor to lower underside frame of bed. The beds can only be set at these two heights. Ladders are not available for lofted beds. The furniture is designed with areas to step up to the bed. 

Students can submit their requests on the Housing Portal starting on August 1, 2024. Requests submitted by August 23, 2024 are typically fulfilled prior to Move-In Day. Requests submitted after August 23, 2024 will be completed within the first two weeks of the start of the quarter, by October 4, 2024.

Students eligible for services through Student Enrichment Services can visit the SES One Form website to learn more about the process of completing the One Form and applying for a lofting fee waiver.
