RHA is proud to partner with Collegiate Concepts, Inc to offer students in designated halls the opportunity to rent a lofting bed kit. (See FAQs below for list of halls that can accommodate a kit in the rooms.)
Collegiate Concepts, Inc. is the only officially approved lofting bed kit provider for Texas State University.
Yes. If you are assigned to one of the following residence halls, do not rent a loft kit. The Department of Housing & Residential Life has purchased loftable furniture for these residence halls, so it comes standard as part of the room:
A loft bed is a bunk bed, but without the bottom bunk. Students love these customized beds because they are fantastic for utilzing limited room space. Loft beds allow you to move your bed higher off the floor creating more space* for desks, TVs, refrigerators, or even a futon. Loft beds help to transform your room into a home away from home.
* In Jackson, and Sterry halls, the dressers and desks are built in, so they can't be moved under a loft.
* In Arnold Hall, the dresser is built into the closet.
* In Elliott Hall, the desk is built in.
No, You do not.
RHA recognizes that students and parents have enough to do during move in days. If you order your loft by the deadline, it will be assembled and waiting for you in your room when you move in. When you move out in May, simply leave the loft as you found it and the vendor will come disassemble it and take it away.
If you are assigned to one of the following residence halls, you may rent a loft kit.
To rent a loft with a shelf for one year (August - May) somewhere in the vicinity of $170 tax included*
To rent a loft with no shelf for one year (August - May), somewhere in the vicinity of $160 tax included*
(All lofts come with a side safety rail.)
*Price may increase from year to year. Please check the Collegiate Concepts, INC website for exact price.*

Yes, all residence hall furniture needs to remain in your room, even if you are not using it. The furniture is part of the room set and halls do not have storage areas to placed unused headboards and footboards. Do not put unused headboards and footboards out in the hallway. You will be charged for them if they are missing and not in your room during your final room inspection at the end of the year.*
*The loft kit utilizes the University-owned mattress and springs, thus leaving the University-owned footboard and headboard un-utilized.
No. Home-made lofts can sometimes take up more than 1/2 of the room, and they sometimes are large and overpowering that the roommate without a loft can feel that their space is being encroached upon. Additionally, home-made lofts are not necessarily safe. The Department of Housing & Residential Life has approved the use of of rented loft kits from Collegiate Concepts, Inc. in the Residence Halls. These are the only lofts that may be used in the halls.
Yes. If you wind up being assigned to a hall that comes with standard lofting furniture, you will be issued a refund. But it is better to reserve your loft now.
