Bed Loft Program

The Office of Residence Life gives students the option to rent bed lofts prior to arriving on campus and throughout the academic year. Bed lofts are a convenient way to maximize the space of residence hall rooms. 

The Office of Residence Life is currently accepting reservations for bed lofts. To reserve,  please submit a Bed Loft Order Request Form. This rental program will be the only option students have to loft their beds. (Quantities are limited)

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I loft my bed? Yes. You can rent a bed loft for the year. Renting a bed loft is an easy, affordable way to create additional living space in your room. Students may preorder a loft by completing the Bed Loft and MicroFridge Order Request. Lofts may also be rented on move-in day but quantities during move-in may be limited.

Personal bed loft kits are not allowed. Must be college approved through the Bed Loft program.  

How do I loft my bed? On moving day, staff members will be available to assist in putting together your bed loft.    

Can I return my Bed Loft? Yes. Bed lofts are returnable throughout the academic year. In order to receive a refund, requests must be made prior to October 11th.  Any requests made after that date will be approved but will not be eligible to receive a refund. Bed lofts will need to be dismantled prior to pick-up. 

What do I do with my Bed Loft at the end of the year? Students are responsible to ensure that bed lofts are dismantled and prior to move-out. If bed lofts are not dismantled students will be charged a $25 fee.  If you have difficulty dismantling your bed loft, please contact reslife@washjeff.edu

Sponsored Programs 

The Office of Residence Life collaborates with various partners to provide students access to  resources to assist them with their  residence hall room needs. For information about the sponsored programs, please review the information below.  

Residence Hall Linen Program

The Residence Hall Linens program has been offered at Washington & Jefferson College for the past 15 years. Specially-sized sheets, blankets and comforters are needed for the extra-long mattresses in the residence halls. These extra-long beds (more than 76 inches in length) are designed to make every student comfortable.

Every year, we work to ensure students and parents will have the right size residence hall bedding on move-in day. Since XL sheets can be trickier to find, we provide a huge collection of custom-sized linens that are guaranteed to fit and guaranteed to last until you graduate. We also have a selection of extra-long comforters, extra-long mattress pads, extra-long thermal blankets, pillows, storage solutions and anything else your residence hall room might need.

Micro Fridge Program 

The Office of Residence Life encourages students to rent a Micro Fridge. Micro Fridges are an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional microwaves and combine the convenience of a mini-fridge, freezer, and microwave in one unit. Microwaves are not permitted in the First Year Halls.

*More information on how to rent a Micro Fridge will be provided to you in the coming weeks.
