Information for Making a Reservation

The Loft features two large rooms with bunk beds and one private room.  Each of the  large bunk rooms has 10 beds (five bunk beds), and while we try to keep those separated by gender, this does not always happen; so at any time, you could be in a co-ed room.  Each of those rooms has a large bathroom with two sinks, two showers and two commodes.  There is a half- bath that is accessed from the hallway.  There is a full kitchen, living room and computer area for your use. The bunk spaces for AFFILIATES (current faculty, staff, students and alumni) are $40 per person per night. The NON- AFFILIATED (friends of the University, including family of alums and parents of students) rate is $70 per person, per night.

There is one private room that can sleep up to four people. It has twin beds and a pull-out queen sleeper sofa. There is a private, full bathroom in the suite and a television. This is the only TV in the Loft.  The affiliate rate for the private room is $125 per night.  The non-affiliated rate is $200 per night.  Because this room is so popular, it can book up to nine months in advance (affiliates only).

Affiliates of ASU may make a reservation up to nine months in advance. Non-Affiliates are welcome to make a reservation up to six months in advance.  Faculty taking official student groups (10 or more) may make a reservation nine-15 months in advance.

Reservations may be made by calling Business Affairs at 828-262-2132, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., or emailing to gryderae [at] appstate [dot] edu. Full payment is required when the reservation is made; Visa and MasterCard are accepted. Cancellation policy is two weeks prior to your arrival date; if you meet this deadline, you may cancel without penalty.  If you cancel with less than two weeks notice, most likely the space cannot be rented in that short period of time, so you will be charged one night’s stay per person as a penalty.  A waiting list is not kept for the Loft.  If it is not available when you want it, you may call or email as often as you wish in order to check for cancellations. 

It is recommended that you come up with four or five different sets of dates you are interested in and call/email to check availability.  Please include the number of people traveling in your party, and whether or not you are specifically looking for bunks or the private room.  No children under five years of age are allowed to stay at the Loft, and children 14 and under are welcome only during the Thanksgiving break, winter break, and summer months.

There is no discount for renting the entire Loft. The prices are firm. We have two beds reserved at all times for our student interns, who are earning credit towards graduation. The maximum amount of space that you could reserve at any given time would be 18 bunks and the private room.

As a friendly reminder, arrivals are checked-in by appointment only, based on your travel. For example, if you arrive at LGA at 8am, we would estimate you to arrive at the Loft sometime between 8:30am-10:30am, and we would arrange for someone to be there during that two-hour window to let you into the Loft. There are no check-ins prior to 8am, and none past 9pm. Appointment for check-in must be made no later than one week prior to your arrival date. Otherwise, there will not be anyone there to let you into the Loft.
