Loft Kit Rental

Loft kits can be rented from OWU for $100 per academic year, regardless of the length of time you have the loft kit.  The fee pays for the proper installation of the loft kit and the taking down of the loft kit when you move out.  Per university policy, students cannot bring their own loft kit.  Equipment to bunk beds is free.  The loft rental fee is applied directly to your student bill and is non-refundable.

Student Property Insurance

Students, not the University, are responsible for loss of personal property within your room on campus due to theft, fire, flood, etc... The Department of Residential Life encourages all students to have student property insurance.  There are many options out there for you to select from, but if you need a place to look we suggest you look at Gallagher Insurance as an affordable option.
