Lofts may not be constructed or erected in any residence hall room; however, some rooms do contain beds that can be arranged in multiple configurations. A description of the different configurations is listed below.

Please see the individual building pages for specific furniture information based on the type of building.

  • All bed reconfigurations must be performed by Housing Facility Staff. To request a reconfiguration, complete a Maintenance Request online or contact the Housing Facilities Work Center at 404-894-0520.
  • Bed Safety Rails – When beds are requested to be raised to the high position in authorized halls, students who are prone to rolling out of a twin bed size mattress have the option to request a safety rail to attach to the frame to prevent serious injuries from falling from a higher height. These rails are available from Housing, and can be requested via the work order system – Maintenance Request. If a bed is raised too high for your desires submit a housing work request to get it lowered to one of the other approved configurations. Beds are not to be placed adjacent to a window where a student might roll out the window while asleep.

E-Z Loft System

Special channel locks on each bed end allows a variety of positions from the bottom of the frame to the top. Any adjustment to a bed MUST be made by Housing personnel only.

Available in all residence halls except North Avenue East, Center Street North, and Center Street South.
