Lofts are permitted in residence halls if the construction is in accordance with the university's loft construction guidelines sheet. Lofts must be built within the first two weeks of arrival to campus and the bed parts and university furniture must stay in the room. The university does not provide specific directions for how to build a loft, only guidelines. Sometimes, upper class students who are graduating will be trying to sell their lofts that are already constructed. Lofts built for one building may not always fit into another building. Students are encouraged to get exact dimensions of their rooms before building a loft. This can be done after the students arrives on campus. Approximate room dimensions are available on your hall specific page. Students are not allowed in buildings early for constructing lofts. Lofts are not permitted in any newly constructed/renovated buildings or floors. For more information on building a loft, please look at the Loft Information page. You can also print a Loft Building Request Form that is to be completed before the construction of a loft.
