Residence Life: Wooden Loft Conversion Kits
Residents living within Bridgeway Commons, Dobson Hall, McGregor Hall, Melcher Hall, Porter Hall, Rountree Commons, Southwest Hall, or Wilgus Hall are able to rent a wooden loft kit directly from their building. These loft kits are component extensions from the original bed frame and stored within each building. All lofts include an optional ladder and rail. For an additional cost, you may rent a shelf on which to set alarm clocks, books, glasses, or other items. To order a wooden loft please complete the wooden loft application form.
Students who rent lofts in Rountree Commons will have the loft placed and assembled inside their suites. At this time Rountree Commons does not have shelves or ladders available to students, however, all the lofts include a safety rail.
