Multiple-Occupant Suites

Triple suites are available for First-Year students on the Laird Campus First-Year neighborhood in George Read and Ray Street.

Students in triple suites may request reimbursement toward the cost of one rented bed loft per room, to help make the best use of the space. A rented loft is a metal frame that raises a University-provided bed - typically high enough to fit other furniture under the bed. We recommend no more than one loft per triple room. Bed lofts must be rented from an approved vendor. There is no guarantee of availability; bed lofts are first-come, first-served. Therefore, we suggest ordering your bed loft as early as possible.

To place an order, visit BedLoft.com.

Upper-Division students can select suites in Independence East and West, Thomas McKean and James Smith.

Students are responsible for cleaning the bathroom and providing cleaning and paper products.
