Loft Bed

Bed Lofts
A bed loft is a metal frame that supports the mattress & bed supplied by the University & creates enough space beneath the mattress for additional furniture to be placed (i.e. dresser, desk, chair, etc.). Residents have the opportunity to lease a bed loft through CBL for the year to achieve that extra space you're looking for in your residence hall room! Bed lofts are installed in your room BEFORE you arrive & removed AFTER you leave. 

Bed lofts brought into University residence halls may be obtained solely from this one vendor. This vendor's product has been reviewed & confirmed to meet safety criteria specified by USA Housing & Dining. 

Please note: Personal lofts, cinder blocks, & bed risers are not permitted in any of the residence halls. Please see the "Furniture" Community Standard in our Residence Education Handbook for more information.

Area Rugs
Buy a rug for your room and let CBL roll it out for you BEFORE you move in. Rug prices start at $99 plus tax if ordered by July 25. Rug prices increase on all orders placed after July 25th to start at $109 plus tax. Styles and colors may vary depending on availability.

Care Packages
Share your love and support all year long with the University of South Alabama care package program. A care package is the best way to remind your student that Mom and Dad are thinking of them on a birthday, a holiday, and during final exams. A care package says it all.  Each of our care packages are loaded with all of your student's favorite snacks, including fresh baked cakes or cookies, fresh fruit, candy bars, and more! The best part is that you can include your own personal note to your student in every package. Don't just show them how much you care, tell them!

For years, University of South Alabama has been offering the care package program to every student. We know the perfect time to send each package throughout the semester, just when your student really needs a boost.  Proceeds from this program go to Residence Hall Association and are used for programming in the residence halls at the University of South Alabama.
