Yes! We provide all of the necessary hardware for you to loft or bunk your bed. Bunking pins are available at our front desk year-round, free of charge. Loft Kits are available for a fee, and must be requested in advance. Find all the details on our Housing Requests webpage, or submit your Loft Kit request (typically open July-April) in the Res Life Portal.

As for installation, you may have your bed professionally adjusted, or install your bunk or loft yourself. Visit our Housing Requests webpage to submit a Work Order for assistance or to view video tutorials to learn how make the adjustments yourself.

I want to know more about Convocation. What are my expectations?

All students living on campus are required to attend Convocation and check-in with their Resident Assistant. On-campus students will sit with their hall. View our Convocation seating chart to see where your hall will be sitting.

All students are given a ‘Skip’ to use at their discretion to miss Convocation once a semester. Please notify your RA in advance if you will be using your Skip. If you need to request an exemption to miss Convocation more than once, please note the following:

    • On-Campus Students: For work-, class-, or travel-related absences known ahead of time, please submit a Permission Form on the Community Life webpage to request an exemption at least 48 hours in advance. For emergency situations, please direct your exemption request to residencelife@liberty.edu.

If you miss Convocation and wish to appeal the violation assigned, simply click on the link provided in the violation email from the Office of Community Life and submit your appeal within 48 hours. If you missed Convocation for a doctor’s appointment, please be sure to email your doctor’s note to your Resident Director after submitting your appeal.
