Ready to Request Lofting/Raising of Your Bed?

Please be sure that you read through the process below to insure that the bed in your room will be adjusted based on your preferences.  Please insure that you have a clear idea about how far off the ground your lofted/raised bed will be before requesting the adjustment.  Our Facilities Services staff will have your bed adjusted before you arrive on campus provided we have your request by August 1.  For requests that we receive after August 1, work orders will be completed in the order they are received. Request forms are now closed. For questions about bed modifications, please email your Area Director

  • Requests for bed height adjustments will only be accepted through the Area Director for your residence halls within the first 30 days of each semester; deadlines are October 1 for Fall semester, and February 15 for Spring semester. (Link to the form above.)
  • Once the bed height has been adjusted, any requests for changes to the bed height (even if you are requesting it be lowered to standard height) within the same academic year are subject to a $50 charge per request.  It is important that you are confident of your desire to loft or raise your bed. 
  • If your request for bed height adjustment is made after you occupy the room, the bed and the area around the bed must be clear and accessible for Facilities staff to perform the adjustment.  If Facilities staff are unable to safely and easily access the bed, they will not perform the work.  They will leave a note that they were unable to complete the work.  You will be required to submit another request.  Once the request is filed by your Area Director, it will be addressed in 3-5 business days.
