Residents are responsible for securing their room/suite/apartment at all times. This includes carrying their ID and access card at all times. Students who are locked out of their room or building during business hours (Mon-Friday 8AM-5PM) may stop by or call their Resident Advisor, Residence Coordinator or Area Director to get access.
After business hours, students should call the on-duty RA for their building:
- St. Mary, Stanton, or Crandall call 651.324.2357
- Carondelet, Caecilian, Alberta or Georgia call 651.324.2358

Staff may not always be readily available to let students into their room. Students may need to wait up to 20 minutes for staff to arrive.
