They’re back! That terrific tandem of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill channel their dorm days as undercover officers Jenko and Schmidt infiltrating a college campus in the hit movie 22 Jump Street, a sequel to their 2012 blockbuster, 21 Jump Street. Of course, the duo encounters college students and experience university living while on assignment. But at University Loft, we think they might – just might – have been upstaged by a featured top performer in the film: University Loft dorm room furniture for college housing and residence life.
Why did the 22 Jump Street team choose University Loft furniture to be featured on their fictional college campus? Probably the same reasons that students and residence life housing administrators choose University Loft college furniture day in and day out (and have since the mid-1980s. University Loft furniture is timelessly modern, ultra-functional and built to last. Because University Loft dorm room furniture is modular, it can be configured in myriad ways for any dorm room, real or staged. And because University Loft student furniture is made from solid wood that’s stronger than oak, it stands up to the wear and tear of students or even stars pretending to be students.
At University Loft Company, we’re honored that the makers of 22 Jump Street chose University Loft student furniture to be part of their latest hit film (22 Jump Street topped the box office its debut weekend). Honored, but not surprised. After all, University Loft furniture for the college dorm room has been a perennial top performer on college and university campuses for decades. We’ve also been featured on television’s Arrested Development. Now we’re a star on the movie set, too!
