Room Set Up
Both due to a limited supply of extra bed frames and limiting individuals who are in/out of student residence hall rooms, beds will not be lofted this year. Being that students will not be tripled this year, there is plenty of space for both beds to be separated and on the ground. Although the beds are not lofted, they will be set to the highest adjustment (approximately 30 inches high) to provide storage underneath. We chose this as the standard it is the most common furniture set-up that students request.
Students who have a documented medical condition that requires furniture adjustments should contact Residential Life at email@example.com or (585) 385-8281.
