Would you like to set up your bed to utilize more space in your room? You can rent a loft kit or bunk beds with a roommate.
Loft kits are a rental option available to students housed in DePauw University’s Residence Halls. The addition of a loft kits maximizes space in the room by raising the height of the bed. Home built and/or loft kits not rented from the University are not permitted.
- The University has a significant, but limited number of loft kits that may be reserved for use during the school year. These loft kits are available on a first come, first served basis.
- Please understand that filling out and sending the form does not guarantee that you will receive a loft kit.
- Loft kits are available in Mason (most), Lucy, Humbert, Longden & Bishop Roberts. The beds are unable to be lofted in Rector Village, Vernon Jordan, UOAHs, Bloomington St. Hall and a few exceptions in Mason Hall.
