Dorm Life


When you arrive at the dormitory registration office, you will be assigned to a room for the duration of the program you are attending. Check-in hours are on Sunday from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Tuesday arrivals may check-in from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Wednesday and Thursday arrivals may check-in from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Students arriving after 5:00 p.m. will be checked in by the security officer on duty. There should be no exchanging of assigned rooms unless approved by the dormitory staff in advance of the move. If, for any reason, you need to be moved before your class is over, the dormitory manager will notify you.

The dormitory rooms have been furnished with the basic equipment to house students as comfortably as possible. No furnishings such as beds, mattresses, pillows, or blankets should be removed, dismantled, or relocated in the dormitory suite area without permission from the dormitory staff.


On Friday, or the last day of your class, all students must clear their rooms and turn their key in to the dormitory office no later than 8:00 a.m. Spreads and blankets should be folded and left on the foot of the bed, along with the pillow. Failure to comply with this schedule will cause inconvenience to new students reporting in the next week and returning students.


Students should notify the dormitory office first if there are any problems. Students should not attempt to fix dormitory furnishings or equipment in the dormitories themselves. Complaints should be reported to the dormitory office staff or the security officer as soon as possible. The office is open 24 hours a day. Action will be taken on your complaints as soon as possible.
