Due to a limited supply of extra bed frames, beds may not be lofted in single and double rooms; however, the height of each bed is adjustable. Although the beds are not lofted, they will be set to the highest adjustment permitted by the manufacturer (approximately 30 in. high). This is the most common furniture set-up that students request.
Facilities Services will be available in the residence halls on move-in day to assist students who wish to adjust their bed height or move furniture.
