The school year has not even ended here in Minnesota but we are busily preparing back to school information for College Life Magazine.

Our loft beds ideal for college dorm rooms are being featured in the magazine. Did you know that you can get an extra high or extra long loft bed in twin, full and even queen sizes? Not only are they the best way to maximize space, but very budget friendly too.

This Becks Queen Size Loft Bed offers lots of sleeping space and wow – with a whopping 2000 pound weight capacity. It is 71″ high. Since it is a queen size its a super space saver allowing room for almost all essentials right under the loft: study, storage and chilling.

Check out our huge selection of extra long bunk beds for the college-bound dorm life.


We are looking for tips from our readers on decorating dorm rooms – a first home away from home.
