Policies Regarding Lofted and Bunked Beds
At Randolph-Macon College, all of our student rooms are equipped with bed pieces
so a student’s bed can be lofted. If students wish to have a guard rail for their
bed, they need to submit a work order and our Physical Plant will bring one to the
student’s room. The following rules and regulations will be adhered to concerning
construction and use of lofts/bunked beds in residence halls as stated in the Code
1. Lofts – Residence Life and Housing Facilities only: Only
College-provided lofts are permitted in residence halls. No existing furniture may
be removed from the room to accommodate a loft. Minimum Sanction: $100 Fine and/or
Removal of Loft.
2. Bed Risers – Any device used to prop or elevate furniture is not permitted
in any College approved housing facility, (i.e. cinder blocks, bed risers, wood
blocks etc). Minimum Sanction: $50 Fine.
3. Room Furniture – When arranging furniture in residence rooms, students
should not block access to windows, air vents, or air conditioning or heating units.
Room furniture should be used in the way that it was intended, and it must remain
in the room. Students will be held accountable for costs of any missing items at
the end of the year. Minimum Sanction: $100 Fine.
Students should understand that while they are provided with all the bed parts for
a lofted/bunked bed, if they wish to have a guard rail for their bed, they must
submit a work order in order to receive it.Students must agree to adhere to all
rules and regulations pertaining to the Loft and Bunked Bed Policy. Failure to adhere
to these guidelines may result in the removal of the lofted/bunked bed and/or charges
for damages. If a student has questions regarding how to properly bunk or loft a
bed, they should contact the physical plant for assistance.
