Out of Thin Air: University Loft Finds a New Way to Help You Be More Productive Without Taking Up Space

University Loft Company is no slacker when it comes to space utilization. After all, the company was founded more than a quarter century ago after James Jannetides was inspired to create space in his college dorm room by lofting his bed. Today, Jannetides and University Loft Company serve more than 1,200 college and university clients by supplying modular, space-saving student residence life furniture. ULoft college furniture takes space utilization to new levels by making it easy to maximize and personalize dorm room living space. Nothing new there, right? But James Jannetides and University Loft never rest when it comes to finding innovative ways to create space, so…

Get ready for the swivel-out mouse tray! The what? What would make a mouse swivel and what does that have to do with University Loft? Let me explain… The University Loft swivel-out mouse tray is actually a computer mouse support tray that’s part of an available slide-out keyboard drawer for student desks. Here’s how it works: simply pull out the keyboard tray, and when you do, the computer mouse support tray swings out, suspended from a single pivot point support in thin air. Close the keyboard drawer and the mouse support goes back into hiding – kind of like a furry little mouse into a hole in the baseboard (I’m channeling Pixie and Dixie cartoons, now).

Like so many James Jannetides and University Loft innovations, this one is patented. Officially, the patent is for the “Keyboard drawer with self-retracting mouse platform.”

So if you need just a little more space on your student desk, turn – or swivel – to University Loft. Our retractable mouse tray is just another way ULoft helps you maximize your dorm room space!
