Incoming Undergraduate Students
Returning Residents
You always have the option of modifying your bed arrangements on your own (and do so at your own risk). If you need help modifying your bed after initial bed setups are complete, you may request assistance through your RA. A Residence Life staff person will be assigned to assist you in making the appropriate bed modifications (in most cases this will require one or two residents of the room to help make the desired modifications). Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, initial set-up for all furniture requests is included. Each subsequent request to reconfigure bunk beds, junior lofts, or high lofts will result in a $25.00 service fee.
PLEASE NOTE: Beds are a part of the university furniture included in your residence hall room. In accordance with Residence Life Policies and Procedures no furnishings, including university beds may be permanently altered or removed from your room. Additionally, in the interest of safety, beds may not be stacked on top of other furniture, cinder blocks, or the like, and non-university lofts are prohibited. Ladders and rails are not a standard furniture offering outside of high loft rentals. If a ladder and/or rail is requested for a compatible bed separately from a high loft rental, the rental cost is $50.00 for the academic year. 
Not all beds are compatible with bunking/lofting equipment.
