Lofts

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. In general, Traditional and Suite style beds will allow multiple configurations while Apartment style does not.

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

NOTE:

  • 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.

The Dimensions below are the most common, however, due to model and manufacturing changes all measurements should be taken as approximate. Click on the images below to see larger views of the models.
