Renting From BedLoft

University Residences partners with to provide optional amenities for your room, including high quality wooden bed lofts, microfridge/microwave combination units, and futons. A lofted bed raises the height of the twin bed to create usable floor space under the bed for a TV, futon, or desk. Lofts are installed by Bedloft staff, complete with a safety rail. Lofts, rented microfridge combo units, and purchased futons are delivered to your room for maximum convenience.

PRICE AND ORDER DEADLINE: $60 per loft, if ordered by July 28, 2020

Orders submitted and confirmed before deadline will be placed in your room before scheduled student move-in date. After the deadline, the price for lofts increases to $80 and in-room delivery is not guaranteed prior to move-in.

Visit for instructions and product information. Lofts fit in most University Residences student rooms; however, a few uniquely shaped rooms may preclude lofting – in these cases lofts will not be eligible for purchase from the Bedloft site. Futons and microfridges are not limited by room size.
