Beds and Rooms

Dorm room furniture example

  Beds can be assembled in a number of ways. Single beds, like the one pictured below sit directly on the floor. There is about 8-9" of space under the bed that can be used for storage.

Two single beds are stacked to make a bunk bed. There is about 8-9" of space under the lower bed that can be used for storage.

In order to make a bunk bed, two single beds must be disassembled. Assemble the lower unit of the bunk bed by hooking one bedspring on the two headboards. The two footboards and remaining spring are assembled to make the top unit. Before setting the top unit on the bottom one, 4 metal pins (approximately ¼" in diameter and 2 ½ " in length) must be inserted into the pre-drilled holes in the top end posts. Once these are inserted, the top unit is set on the bottom and the metal pins fit into the bottom of the footboards posts. It is very important that the metal pins be inserted into all 4 corner posts. This prevents the top bed from slipping off the bottom bed's bed ends. Metal pins are available from the service desk in each building or the community office.

Dorm Bunk Beds Single Dorm Bed lofted
(Example: Bunk Bed) (Example: Loft Bed)

A loft bed is similar to a bunk bed, but there is no bottom bed. Instead, furniture is placed under the top bed. This maximizes floor space. The picture (above left) shows a loft bed, without furniture. Note that there is a horizontal brace across the bottom of the bed, in the back. This horizontal brace, along with the metal pins installed in the end posts (like the bunk bed), keep the top bed from slipping off the bottom bed ends. In addition, the horizontal brace reduces side-to-side swaying.
