Front Desks

Front Desks

Residence hall front desks are staffed by trained student employees (desk receptionists) between the hours of 8 a.m. and midnight and by professional security attendants from midnight to 8 a.m. Desk receptionists are responsible for monitoring access control at the hall front desks by checking identification, maintaining the computerized visitation check-in system, upholding policies related to security and guest sign-in, and serving as friendly campus resources for residents and their guests.
