Corner Rooms in Towers
Corner Rooms in Southwest Towers come with the beds set up in a bunked position, since this is the most popular way students arrange these rooms. Although bunking beds is the most popular arrangement, students are free to arrange their furniture to suite their preferences. Planning to loft one or both beds instead? See the Your Room page for lofting instructions.
