Website Address for this Policy
The Department of Residence Life provides bed assemblies that are designed for bunking and meet safety requirements in all the residence halls. The use of cinder blocks is not permitted. Students are responsible for bunking and un-bunking their beds. Bunking pins are available at the main desk of each residence hall (supplies are limited). Please keep in mind that each resident is responsible for returning his/her room and its contents to the original condition (as defined by the inventory form) before checking out.
Due to liability and safety issues, lofting, using bed risers or stacking beds other than specified will not be allowed.
The Director of Student Housing Administration is responsible for the review of this policy every four years (or whenever circumstances require immediate review).
