No individual without a University identification card or special clearance for dormitory access is allowed to enter a dormitory. Parents/guardians are allowed into the dorms only during check-in and check-out, to help students move. Non-residential Summer Program students are not allowed into the dorms.

Students are supervised by live-in resident advisers who are responsible and carefully-selected college or graduate students. The resident advisers have completed an intensive training program and are devoted to looking after the safety and well-being of students before and after each daily session as well as on the weekends. The RA/student ratio is approximately 1 to 10.
