Services

The following services are provided for your convenience, needs, and safety.

Information Desk

The Information Desk is open 24 hours when conferences or events are in session. Mail drop off and general campus information is available at the Information Desk. If you need assistance during the hours the desk is closed, call the Office of Public Safety (298-1949) and they will page a staff member.

Staff

Within your hall you have conference assistants and a conference director you can contact for information and assistance. Room and phone numbers for the conference staff can be obtained from the hall desk.(Selected telephone numbers can be found below.)

Safety/Security

Please lock your door even if you are in the room. Do not leave valuables in your room unattended. Immediately report any missing items or suspicious persons and activities to your conference/camp staff and the conference coordinator. In case of emergency, follow the evacuation procedures on the back of your room door. Do not tamper with any equipment, including smoke detectors and fire alarms. Individuals and or conference/camp groups will be charged for tampering.

Vending

Machines are located in the lobby areas. Please ask an information desk or conference staff member for locations.

Policies

Alcohol/Smoking

Guests are expected to comply with all local, state and federal laws regarding the use of alcohol and drugs. In addition, smoking and alcohol are permitted outside only. Guests are not allowed to smoke or have alcohol in their rooms or inside the building.

Keys

Room keys are property of the University and are the responsibility of the guest. Carry your key with you at all times, as your key is needed for the elevator and floor access. Do not prop doors open; this poses a security risk to guests. Report any lost keys to conference staff immediately. Any keys not returned will be assessed a $50 charge.

Please leave all furniture (beds, couches, chairs, etc.) in original configuration. Ceiling tiles, walls and smoke detectors in the rooms and hallways are not to be disturbed. Notify your conference staff immediately if there is damage in your room when you arrive so that you will not be charged in error. The conference/camp will be billed damages to rooms and public areas that can be directly attributed to conference/camp participants.
