Loft Plans

Residence Life

Our residents often loft their beds in order to use the space in their rooms more effectively. The Residence Life staff encourages families to bring their own tools as it will speed up the lofting process, but limited tools can be checked out at the front desk of your residence hall.

For the 2017-2018 academic year, all residence halls, except Johnstone Center (Pryor, Colter, and Mullan wings) Hannon Hall, and the Quads will have bed lofting systems and will not require additional materials or tools.

2017-2018 Loft Options

Students assigned to the following halls will have the option to build their own lofts using the plans below, purchasing a loft kit from a local, Bozeman area hardware store, or renting a loft.
