At University Loft, we’ve been building furniture for college and university housing for more than 25 years. A lot has changed during that time, both on college campuses, in university residence life, and in the “real world”. Since the beginning, James Jannetides and the University Loft crew have been leaders in product innovation and responding to the needs and wants of the residence life community. That commitment to industry excellence has made University Loft Company the one that other student furniture manufacturers follow. In other words, University Loft has long been the “big man(ufacturer) on campus.”
Being the college housing furniture leader year after year is not a position University Loft takes lightly. When you’re the big manufacturer on campus (more than 1,200 campuses, actually), pretenders to the throne come and go. And that’s okay. They keep us sharp, keep us hungry, keep us committed to excellence.
But mostly, we remain the leader because of our customers. They – YOU – are the reason we work so hard to develop dorm room furniture products that make student residence life more comfortable and functional. You are the reason we continue to make a difference to our planet through our Green Plan and environmental initiatives. You are why we continue to invest in manufacturing technologies to make producing ULoft’s solid wood student furniture more precise and efficient than ever.
University Loft might be the big manufacturer on campus, but we owe our success to you, to the residence life community, to student housing furniture buyers and administrators, and most of all to students across America and around the world. Thank you!
