Your building is equipped with an electronic security system which consists of card readers and prop monitors. Cards readers read the magnetic stripe on your student identification card to grant access to residents, staff, and authorized others. Prop monitors sense whether exterior doors and interior security doors are closed and latched securely, and sound horns to notify residents and staff if they are not. In most cases, closing the door will silence the horn. Some special application locks and horns must be reset by a staff member.

Throughout, nearly all spaces
Pipe Insulation: Some rooms, many but not all pipes

The heating system is a hot water convector system. Air in the room is drawn into the convector at its front near the floor and passes across the hot water coils to transfer heat into the room. There is a valve on the lower left side of the unit which needs to be turned counterclockwise to allow complete circulation of the hot water.

There are two different heating zones in your hall, with zones on the south and north sides of the building. This means that while the heat is on in your room, it may be off in your friend's room across the hallway. The number one problem encountered during the heating season is when residents block the radiator with a bed or a large piece of furniture. This blocks the air flow to the unit and prevents proper operation. Consider this when you arrange your room.


BUNKING BEDS -- If you would like to bunk your beds, you may do so by borrowing the pins for oak bed ends from your Service Desk.

MICROWAVE OVENS are not allowed in the resident rooms. Some floors own a microwave oven which is secured in the floor lounge; check with your RA.
