Am I allowed to use a power strip?
Students are encouraged to use surge protectors with a breaker.

Can the beds be bunked/lofted?
Yes. There are three different settings that are offered. The beds are placed on the low setting before you arrive. There is approx. 10" for storage under a bed at this height. We have a mid loft setting that allows for a dresser to be placed under the bed. The high loft has room for a desk and dresser under the bed.

Refrigerators are not to exceed 4 cubic feet.

Does the window open wide enough for a box fan?
This depends on the size of the box fans. We recommend you use a window fan.
