Bed

Frame: Solid Hardwood

Dimensions: 85 x 38 x 36

Mattress size is 80" x 36"

                  

Storage

All beds provided by Lehigh provide you with flexibility, comfort and extensive storage capability beneath. The metal frame that the mattress rests on can be set in the bed ends so that the underbed height is either 14" or 22".

Beds may only be lifted off the ground by bed risers. One set of bed risers is permitted per bed but cannot be used in conjunction with bunk beds. Bed risers are not provided by the University.

Anti-Bed Bug

The ultra snug-fit recessed steel inserts, combined with an “L” channel frame sinuous spring and an inverted seam mattress all work together to ensure your bed is a “no hide zone” for insects.

Toolless

Convert the bed from a single bed, to bunked all without the use of tools. Safety/guard rails are suggested when bunking beds or lofting over 30″ high.

Bunk Beds, Bunking Pins, and Bed Rails

All University beds can be bunked. Students choosing to bunk their University beds must do so using University issued bunking pins. Bunking pins are available upon request on opening day and throughout the year at the Office of Housing Services. Bed rails are required for students who choose to bunk their university-issued beds. Bedrails will be delivered shortly after bunking pins are issued. Bunk bed pins should not be used to construct lofts with other bed ends for two reasons:

  • Each bed is assigned to a bedroom. The entire bed should remain in the room it was assigned to be in.
  • There is not sufficient support for the loft as described in the loft policy.

Loft Guidelines

As an alternative to bunking beds, students may construct a loft in any university building. Prior to constructing a loft in any University building, students must review the Loft Safety Guidelines and Sample Construction Specifications from the Office of Housing Services, as well as sign a Student Waiver of Liability and Assumption of Risk form. Students can find these forms on the Portal. Lofts are neither provided nor constructed by the university.
