In order to ensure a safe learning environment, all summer college participants are required to abide by Ithaca College policies and procedures.

Housing, Meals, and Residence Hall Staff

Housing is coeducational, and students eat together in the campus dining halls. College-age resident advisers act as mentors and orientation leaders and assist with recreational programs in the evenings and on weekends.

To support student safety, building curfew during weekdays (Sunday - Thursday) is 11:00 p.m. and extended to midnight on weekends. Residence hall staff actively monitor curfew and make regular room checks throughout the evenings.

Health Care

The J. David Hammond Center for Student Health Services is open Monday through Friday. If necessary, referrals are made to local physicians and medical facilities. Payment for off-campus services and for medications is the student's responsibility.

Accepted students will be sent a medical information form that must be returned with the final payment. During the program, students are responsible for administering their own medications.
