Lofts & Handcarts

A limited number of lofts and handcarts are available for check out at the following times and locations. If there is a long line for lofting items, you may come back later. If you own a handcart, we recommend you clearly label it with your name and bring it with you. A photo ID is required to check out a loft or handcart.

Instructions on how to loft or bunk your bed are available online here.

For rooms with beds already lofted, lofts may not be removed from room. If you wish to unloft your bed, you may store the lofting legs under the bed.
