Guests may call you from the visitor telephone located beside each outside door to advise you they are waiting outside. Depressing the "lock release" button located in your living room will momentarily unlock the outside door so your guest(s) can enter.

ELECTRONIC SECURITY
Work is underway in the South Hill suite and apartment buildings to equip the outside doors with an electronic security system consisting of a card reader, prop monitors, and alarm horn. Card readers will read the magnetic stripe on your student identification card to grant access to residents, staff, and authorized others. Prop monitors will detect whether outside doors are closed and latched securely, and will sound horns to notify residents and staff if they are not. Closing and re-securing the door will typically silence the horn. Montgomery hall is still a work in progress. However, most buildings have been completed and have card access.

HEAT
The Heating/Air Conditioning System is provided by fan coil units located under each window. The system was completely rebuilt in the summer of 1995. Each room has a fan coil unit in it. There is a little door on the unit that you push open to access the fan controls. The fan can be set on low, medium or high. Air is drawn into the unit from the front near the floor and then flows across the coils and is blown by the fan up and into the room.

All other South Hill halls have an air handler heating/cooling system. A thermostat located in a common area of your apartment will both tell you the current temperature within the apartment and allow you to regulate the temperature.


EXTRAS
BUNKING BEDS -- If you would like to bunk your beds, you may do so by borrowing the pins for oak bed ends from Resident Life's South Campus Office in 0200 Calvert Hall.

MICROWAVE OVENS are not allowed in the resident rooms. You may have one microwave oven in your kitchen.
