ANTS Dorms & Air Conditioners
Hi Everyone,

It's clear that the summer weather is coming our way. I know many of
you will be tempted to put an air conditioner in your ANTS
room/apartment. Please remember that the current housing regulation
states the following:

"A. Electrical appliances
3. The following are not allowed in student apartments:
b. Air conditioners (Medical exceptions can be made by submitting a
written request along with a doctor's note indicating need. Request
should go to housing office. The medical exception is only available to
residents of Herrick House, Fuller Hall and Kendall Hall.)"

We understand that the heat can be pretty extreme in the summer and are
looking for a way to allow air conditioning under some circumstances.
We are looking to have a revised policy in place very soon. In the
meantime, please contact Pilar if you might be interested in obtaining
air conditioning for your room/apartment and she will put you on a

Do note, however, that until a revised policy is in place no one should
have an air conditioner in their room/apartment! Any one needing a
medical exemption must let me know and have their physician send me a
letter stating that need right away.

Let me know if you have questions,

Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life
