If any participants require special accommodation based on a medical condition or disability, please notify a Summer Housing representative at the time of your group request to discuss the type of accommodation needed.

Safety & Security

Residence Hall Staffing

All buildings are staffed with a full time, professional, live-in Residence Hall Director, assisted by a team of professional and paraprofessional staff.
