Move-In Information

Design Your Room

Make your living space your own! 

Part of the fun of moving into any new place is the opportunity to give it an identity. Talk with your roommate(s) and plan to make your room a special place. 

Posters, pictures, bedspreads, lamps, and other accessories all serve to add a personal touch to your room.

Preferred Bed Adjustment

Please Note

All decorations must be removed at the end of the school year.  Decorations which would make permanent changes in a room are not permitted and may result in damage charges.


Bed Options

Option 1 - Beds Bunked

Talk with your roommate about bed preference prior to submitting the form. Only one submission per room is needed if both occupants wish to have their beds bunked.

Option 2 - Bed Lofted

Limited lofts are available for the academic year. If you would prefer lofting your bed, submit the Bed Preference Request Form beginning August 1st.

Lofts are provided in the order that requests are received. Non-university provided lofts are not permitted.

Option 3 - Bed Raised

Raising the bed height allows additional space to store belongings under it and greater flexibility in the layout of the room. Keep in mind your level of comfort in how high the bed can be raised.
