Bed Elevation & Furniture Configuration
Requests to have your bed height adjusted:
- Most bed frames are set to the highest raised bed height (39" or 28") prior to your arrival.
- If your bed is not set to the highest setting due to the style of the bolted bed frame:
- The lowest setting makes the overall height of the bed (with mattress) at about 20" with approximately 9" height underneath.
- The highest setting brings the overall height of the bed (with mattress) to 28" and allows for about 22" clearance underneath.
- No requests for bed lofting and/or bunking will be approved.
- Requests for lowering bed height or adjusting a bolted bed frame to the highest settings are accepted beginning September 1 and ending October 1 for the fall semester, and February 11 through March 11 for the spring semester.
To request to have your bed height adjusted:
- Place a maintenance request (link below), and in the "Request Type" box, select "Repair, Maintenance,Service."
- In the "Request Summary" box, type in your request to have your bed lowered.
- Some bed elevation requests may not be able to be accommodated due to room configuration or fire code issues.
- Some rooms on campus – particularly triples, or those in older buildings with unconventional floor plans – will be set up before students move in with beds already lofted or bunked to accommodate the space. In most cases, this set-up represents the only possible bed configuration for that room.
