5 Ways University Loft Furniture is the Smart Choice for Student Housing

Why have more than 1,000 colleges and universities across America and around the world chosen University Loft – again and again – for their student housing and dorm room furniture? We think these five reasons are among the top ways that University Loft furniture is the “go-to” choice for university housing:


University Loft furniture always looks fresh and modern in the college housing environment. Our solid wood dorm room furniture is available in three primary series (Graduate, Mission and Meridian). And for college lounge and other upholstered furniture, University Loft offers dozens of fabric choices (many of which are interchangeable via our unique Velcro® system).


With University Loft student furniture, each dorm room might look a little different from its neighbors. Why? Because ULoft furniture is designed to maximize space while also empowering each student to personalize his or her sleep and study configuration. In fact, the University Loft Tool-Less System makes possible dozens of dorm room furniture configurations.


At ULoft, we believe that each student residence should be a comfortable place to live and learn. Part of our comfort solution is due to the customization I noted above. But part of it is thanks to University Loft’s continual innovation. Two examples: the University Loft Two-Position Chair and the New Wave Chair. These college seating solutions are built with positional comfort in mind. Check them out!


Want proof of the quality of University Loft furniture? Just open a dresser drawer or take a closer look at our solid wood and joining techniques. We use a type of environmentally-friendly timber, Hevea Brasiliensis, that is stronger than Northern Red Oak; and our furniture is built using interlocking English dovetail joints and corner blocks for added strength and durability.

Environmental Responsibility

Speaking of environmentally friendly… ULoft furniture is crafted with care using Hevea Brasiliensis, a type of Environmentally Farmed Timber, or EFT. This fast-growing, super strong timber is useful for latex production during its growth; and as many as three HB trees can be grown and harvested in the time it takes an oak tree to reach harvestable maturity.

Each of the above is reason enough for university housing furniture buyers to take a closer look at University Loft furniture for college residences. Taken together, however, these 5 reasons add up to exceptional value, and that might be the best reason of all that University Loft furniture is the smart choice for student housing.

What about you? Why do you think University Loft dorm room furniture is the smart choice?
