The beds are already lofted which is why it says that. They should make that more clear.
Even if your bed is not lofted you can loft it.

There are advantages and disadvantages to living on campus. Most students find that doing so freshman year grants the opportunity to interact with students more and get involved in activities without having to worry about commuting. The quality of the dorm depends on what dorm you choose and your own personal preferences. They come furnished with the bare essentials (bed, desk, dresser, and closet); the rest is up to you. There are coed and single-sex dorms for freshmen and dorms with hall or suite-style bathrooms. Some say sharing a community bathroom helps students bond, while others wouldn’t dare use a community bathroom without being armed with a can of Lysol. University cleaning staffs do clean the hall bathrooms every day, while students with suite-style bathrooms are left on their own.
Visitation policies in some dorms can be a hindrance since most don’t allow members of the opposite sex late at night. There are mandatory hall meetings, rules about quiet hours, and the occasional RA from hell. Students generally rate the dorms average or a bit less than average in terms of cleanliness and quality. It seems as though Patterson and Capstone are the favorites for freshmen, but students admit that even these dorms aren’t all that great. On the flip side, if you live on campus, students have the convenience of being able to roll out of bed 15 minutes (or less) before class and still make it on time. You’ve also got the convenience of being surrounded by hundreds of students in the same boat as you, which can sometimes make the transition a whole lot easier. Oh yeah, and food is always close when you’re on campus.
