    Can the rail and ladder be removed and stored elsewhere if the bed is set at the lowest height?

    Hi Pamela! Ladders do not come with this bed height. We just included it here so people could see what it looks like. When at the lowest height, the bed can be turned so the guardrail faces the wall. Please refer to our website or lofting board for more info. Thanks!

    Do you have the dimensions of the attached headboard?

  • RLSH at SMU

    Catherine, the headboard is approximately 42" wide. The height depends on how high you loft your bed and what residence hall you are living in!

Here is a lounge on one of the floors. There is no furniture here yet but there will be! Perfect place to do homework or hang out with friends.

A view of a room on the first floor from the window. As you can see, the left door is the closet and the right is the door exiting the room.

This is another example of a closet in the new buildings. It is inside the room as opposed to surrounding the front door to the room. Still very spacious with lots of room for boxes and other storage.

This is a typical closet in the new buildings. As you can see, they are right when you walk in the room surrounding both sides of the front door. Probably good if you or your roommate have stinky shoes that need to air out.

The water fountains in the hallway of the new buildings. Has an easy way to fill up a water bottle and grab a drink!

The community bathrooms in one of the new buildings. Looks pretty great, right?

The 5 new buildings all have community bathrooms. Each bathroom has lockers where you can store your toiletries so you don't have to carry them down the hall.
