Loft Kits, Bunked and Raised Beds
Would you like more storage space? A different look for your room? Maybe just more space in your room?
We have a few different options for your bed that may help achieve some of those goals. Loft kits and Raised beds provide more space under your bed for storage or furniture. Bunked beds provide more space in your room for whatever you might need. Clicking on the links within this paragraph will take you to that section of the page to find out more.

How to reserve a loft kit.
- The University has a significant, but limited number of loft kits that may be reserved for use over the school year. These loft kits are available on a first come, first served basis.
- The beds at Kennedy, Rental houses, 301 Boone, Sharp Apartments, Sinto Apartments, Burch, Corkery and any other upper division apartments are not "loftable."
- To reserve a loft kit, please call extension (509) 313-5652 or email email@example.com. You will need to provide your name, building and room number (if you already know it), which height you would like your loft set at (see the pictures below), the side of the room on which you would like the bed (i.e. if you are standing in the doorway looking into your room, would you like your loft on the left or the right?), a phone number to reach you and an email address. If you do not know your building and room number call anyway to be put on the list.
- Please understand that simply leaving a message does not guarantee that you will receive a loft kit. After you have requested your loft kit, you will be contacted by the Custodial Department and advised of your status on the Reservation List.
- Also please note that we do not provide you with a ladder to get into your bed. The ends of your bed can be used to climb onto the bed.
What happens after you have "reserved" a loft kit?
- The Custodial Department sets up all lofts to ensure that they are put together safely. Custodial will not leave an unassembled kit for a student to assemble. You do not need to be in your room for your loft kit to be installed, but please make sure the area under your bed is clear.
- Once assembled, Custodial will attach a form to the lofted bed that informs you how to return the loft kit at the end of the Spring semester (or earlier in the year, if you prefer). It is a good idea to keep this form to ensure that you are not charged for the loft kit.
- You SHOULD NOT give your unwanted loft kit or parts of the kit to other students. The loft has been checked out in your name, and you are responsible for seeing it returned to the Custodial Department in order to avoid the $220 replacement fee. Once you have received the loft kit, you are held responsible for it.
How do you return your loft kit?
- To return a loft kit, please call the message line at (509) 313-5652 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and leave your name, building and room number, side of the room, and contact information, along with the information that you have a loft kit to be collected.
- The Custodial Department will make sure that you have been credited for the loft kit once the loft has been picked up.
How tall are loft kits?
- Below are three pictures of dorm beds, in various states of height. The first is a standard bed. The second shows a standard bed with a loft kit installed in its lower position. The third shows a standard bed with a loft kit installed in its standard position.
- Most beds are "bunkable," except for those in Kennedy and the upper division apartments (unless the apartment has multiple tenants per bedroom, by request of Housing).
- Bunking pins are available at the Plant & Construction Services Customer Service Desk (1004 N Ruby St), and the Custodial Department is always happy to assist any students who wish to bunk their beds.
Please call extension 5659 (or 509-313-5659) or email email@example.com to request that the Custodial Department bunk your beds. You will need to provide your name, building and room number, the side of the room on which you would like the beds bunked (i.e. if you are standing in the doorway looking into your room, would you like your beds on the left or the right?), a phone number to reach you and an email address.
- Most beds are raisable, except for those in Kennedy and the upper division apartments (unless the apartment has multiple tenants per bedroom, by request of Housing).
- To request that your bed be raised, please call extension (509) 313-5652 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to provide your name, building and room number, the side of the room your bed is on (i.e. if you are standing in the doorway looking into your room, is your bed on the left or the right?), a phone number to reach you and an email address.
- Below is a picture of a bed that has been raised.
- The standard mattress requires twin XL sheets.
The standard mattress is 78" or 6' 6" long.
- Also available with limited inventory are "Basketball Beds." This is an double extra long twin size bed. The "Basketball Bed" mattress is 86" or 7' 2" long. To request a "Basketball Bed" please call 313-5652 or email email@example.com with the following information, first and last name, what building and room you are in, phone number to contact you, and email address.
