Optional Rentals

Housing and Residence Life (HRL) offers residents the opportunity to rent additional amenities to enhance their living experience. Below are descriptions of the items you can have added to your room. If you are interested in any of these items, you must select them in your housing application.


Lofts: Both Fairmount Towers and Shocker Hall beds offer the ability to be raised to a variety of heights. Due to the lofting process requiring a significant amount of hardware, the HRL staff must do this for you. If you select a loft option by August 1, it will be already set up and ready to go by the time you move into your space. There is a $30.00 lofting set-up fee, which will be added to your student billing account should you request this option.

Shocker Hall

High Loft Option - 67" Clearance

Medium Loft Option - 61" Clearance

The Flats

Lofts are only available in the Flats doubles and triples.

Lofted Option - 55" Clearance

Other bed set-ups are possible as well, including raised beds and bunked beds (see pictures below). These options are not available on the application and would need to be requested via a maintenance request. A set-up fee may apply.
