Please use the website when ordering a bedloft; that is the most efficient way to reserve a bedloft.

If I move in early for marching band, student employment, pre-season sports, etc., will I be able to get the rented loft early if they are living in Bender, Dancer, Noehren or Rider? 
The lofts are delivered by semi for distribution beginning Thursday, August 22, so they can be picked up then.  Mattresses and bed springs will be in each room when the students move in.  Two people can manage moving and setting up of the loft.  Pieces are connected with bolts secured with wing nuts.  No tools are required.

Move-in day

What if I cannot move-in at the times promoted for Bender and Dancer?
Each day after 3 p.m. is open move-in.

Room layouts

Where can I see room layouts?
Your room layout may be viewed by logging into your housing contract.  In the Contract Status section, see "Room Reservation Details" and link to "View Floor Plan"  at the base of the screen.  This will take you to a view of the floor plan for your room.  You can zoom in and out to see proximity to lounges, stairs, bathrooms and more.  Additional room measurement detail is available on the Residence Halls webpages.
