Bunk/Loft Bed Safety

University-provided bunk beds and lofted beds provide more functionality in compact living spaces. It is important that the safety features of these beds are used as designed.

University bunk bed with safety rail on top bunkUCSC's bunk and loft beds come equipped with built-in safety rails. Safety rails are not to be removed or tampered with.

Residents are not to convert existing provided furniture into loft or bunk beds.

Residents who modify their provided furniture are subject to possible fines and judicial actions (See section IV A 5 b of the Terms and Conditions of residence).

Bunk/Loft Bed Ladder Placement

bunk/loft bed ladder placement

RIGHT:

Ladder solidly touching the floor

Ladder attached to bed frame
(It is also OK to attach ladder at foot or head of bed if it is solidly touching the floor)

Ladder must be placed firmly on the floor with hooks secured to the bed frame to ensure stability. Neither ladder hooks nor safety rails are designed to support the weight of a person and may fail and result in injury if used improperly.

WRONG:

Do NOT hang ladder on top rails of bunk or loft bed

For assistance with ladder placement, contact your community housing office or maintenance (fixit.ucsc.edu)
