Bed Lofts, Futons, and Safes

Looking to create some additional space in your new room? Lofting options are available for rent through College Products at www.collegeproducts.com/usa! Futon and Safe options are also available for purchase through College Products. All products ordered will be delivered directly to campus. NOTE: College Products offers a $20 discount for students who order by August 1st. After that date, prices automatically increase on the site. This vendor meets University safety criteria.

Loft Kits

Loft Kits
Maximize the space in your home away from home by renting a lofting kit. If you order by August 1st, lofts are ready and waiting, assembled in your room on move in day. Following that date, lofts will arrive and be assembled after move in day.

Bed lofts brought into University residence halls may be obtained solely from this vendor. College Products has been reviewed and confirmed to meet safety criteria specified by USA Housing.

NOTE: Without lofting, all residence hall beds are adjustable in height, allowing residents to achieve a maximum of 30” in space below the frame when raised to the highest level. Using a loft from College Products will allow you even more options to personalize the space in your room. When beds are lofted, you can achieve enough space beneath your bed to place your desk and dresser, or even a futon!


Big Hoss Futon Big Hoss™ Futon
Add comfort and durability to your room by purchasing a Big Hoss™ Futon. This futon has double the steel and a thicker quality mattress than local box-store futons. As an added bonus, we deliver to campus and have it waiting for you on move in day!

QuickKey Safe QuickKey™ Safe
Keep your valuables even safer by purchasing a QuickKey™ safe. The safe is large enough to store your bigger valuables like iPads and secure enough to store important documents or jewelry. The QuickKey™ safe also includes a cable to secure it to your College Products Loft Kit.

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.
