Lofts & Beds


University Housing offers loft rentals for students interested in lofting their beds. The cost is $125 per year. Lofts can be requested over the summer months on the MyHousing portal. A deadline will be established each summer for loft requests – see your Move-In Guide for more details.

During the school year, lofts can be requested by submitting a work order. The $125 charge will be prorated to the time of the loft request.

Lofts are easy to assemble – you can access our PDF set-up guide or watch the loft assembly video at

Any loft placed in a resident room must be one that has been rented from University Housing – homemade or purchased lofts are not allowed. University Housing lofts are not available for rental by residents of Purin Hall due to the ceiling fans.


All Residence Hall beds have extra long twin mattresses. XL twin sheet sets are available in most discount and department stores during the summer months. For exact bed dimensions, click here. Standard beds can be raised, lofted, or bunked.

All Kenilworth Square Apartment beds have full-size mattresses and cannot be lofted.

Please note that residents are not allowed to bring their own mattress to any University Housing facility. All University Housing furniture, including mattresses, must remain in the room/suite at all times.
