Multiple options exist for students to maximize floor space in the residence halls. Among those are Western Michigan University-provided loftable or bunkable beds. Homemade or purchased lofts are not allowed in WMU residence halls.

Loftable beds

All halls but the Burnhams have loftable beds that can be arranged in any number of ways. Students can loft both beds, as in the picture above, put one up and one down, or even bunk them. Movable furniture like desks and dressers can fit underneath the loft, as well as futons and small couches.

  • Lofts can be set to any height between 18 inches from the floor to greater than 5 feet in the adjustable track.
  • Standard futons that are 80 inches or less in width fit under the lofts.
