Lofts are permitted in all residence halls where a loft bed is not already provided as part of the standard furnishings. Currently, the halls at Iowa State University where a loft bed is provided are Barton, Birch, Buchanan, Eaton, Freeman, Linden, Lyon, Martin, Maple, Roberts, Wallace, Wilson and Welch.
For building purposes, bed frames are typically 80" long x 36" inches wide and will fit a twin XL mattress. This can be made for under $100 which is cheaper than renting!
