From Go-Getter to Pace-Setter: University Loft Leads the Field in Innovative Modular Furniture for Student Housing

Every year around these parts (Central Indiana, that is), it gets a bit noisy in Speedway, Indiana at a little place called the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. With 33 of the world’s best drivers piloting their ultra-fast racers around the 2.5 mile oval, it can be tough to predict a winner, or even who might lead the race during its 200-mile running. One thing is certain, however: the pace car and its driver will be out front at the start and will carry the winning driver once the checkered flag has waved. Being out front – at the beginning and for the duration – is a position that University Loft Company knows well. Since our beginnings in 1986, we have emerged as a proven leader in the innovative design and manufacture of top-quality solid wood modular furniture for student housing.

University Loft sets the pace for the best in college student furniture

It all started in 1986 when James Jannetides built a loft bed structure to maximize space in his room at Southern Illinois University. From those humble, but inspired beginnings, a championship-caliber team was born, and today Jannetides and University Loft hold multiple patents for design innovation and have won numerous industry awards for leadership and excellence.

But it’s not enough for ULoft to have a history of setting the pace. We work hard to stay out front, day after day, year after year, dorm room after dorm room and college student after college student. The stakes are high: we aren’t just building furniture; we’re building futures.

So, from our humble beginnings with James Jannetides as a young college “go-getter” to our place today as a perennial leader in the college and university student housing furniture industry, University Loft is always more than qualified to set the pace for others to follow.
