I recently came across the following (an extract from the regulations ÿverning student residences in the University of Mississippi):
"Students are no longer able to bring their own lofts into the halls in the fall of 2001. Lofts will be available for rent. Please do not purchase a loft from another student, as you will not be able to use it this fall."
I have tried the obvious dictionaries of American English without success. Can anyone tell a puzzled Englishman what these transportable "lofts" might be?
Yours in anticipation,
