Time for some bed lofting!
We got your request.

Check your student email for confirmation. Don't forget that if you're moving in before the halls officially open, you need to sign up for early arrival.

Want some extra space in your room? We'll assist you in our lofting process!

Lofting your bed is one way to maximize the space in your room. We will help you choose the right loft for you. Depending on where you live, different lofting options and set-ups are available.

Request a Bed Loft

Your first loft request is free. If your loft selection is one that will be completed for you, you will receive an email from us when your lofting is complete. If you change your mind about how you want your bed lofted after we've already completed your request, the fee for each additional request is $50. If you would like the second bed in your room lofted (double room buyouts only), there will be an additional cost of $50. The lofting request form will provide additional instructions.

Loft requests must be received by Aug. 1 to ensure we can complete the set up by fall move-in. We longer accept lofting requests for fall semester after Sept. 1.

We are no longer accepting bed lofting requests for students that moved into the residence halls in August.

If you just moved into the residence halls or will move in soon, complete a work request to request a bed loft.

Make a Loft Request

If you are moving into a new room starting in the spring, you can make a loft request.

Fall residents:
We will accept bed lofting requests for the fall semester starting in mid-June.


Current spring residents:
Complete a work request to request a bed loft if you are a student that has just moved into the residence halls. We are no longer accepting bed loft requests from students already living on campus.
