Work is currently underway to equip your building with an electronic security system which will consist of car readers and prop monitors. Card readers will read the magnetic stripe on your student identification card to grant access to residents, staff, and authorized others. Prop monitors will sense whether exterior doors and interior security doors are closed and latched securely, and will 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.

Additional Lead Information

Old Leonardtown has a self-contained electrical heating/cooling system. A wall-mounted unit blows air throughout the room. There is an electrical three-way junction box near the unit; one position is for air conditioning, one is for neutral, and one is for heat. It is important that this unit not be blocked by a bed or piece of large furniture. This would block the air flow to the unit, compromising its heating/cooling ability.


New Leonardtown has an air handler heating/cooling system. A thermostat is located in the common area of your apartment which will both tell you the current temperature within the apartment and allow you to regulate the temperature. The air handler unit is contained within a room located in the hallway. It has louver doors which should not be blocked. This is not a storage room and no personal or University items should be placed within the room.

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 resident rooms. You may have one microwave oven in the kitchen of your apartment.
