Statement on Dorm Swipe Access Changes

On Friday, The Observer reported that Residential Life had announced in hall staff training that in the upcoming school year Notre Dame students will only have swipe access to their own dorms. 

The decision by the Office of Residential Life is very upsetting, and we have heard many concerns from students over the past 24 hours since the policy was announced during RA training. As soon as we are included in conversation with administration officials we will make sure that these concerns are brought to light.

We were not included in discussions on this issue and look forward to meeting with the administration to express the concerns of the student body. 

We encourage students to continue to send us their thoughts on this policy so we can accurately reflect student opinion in our upcoming conversations with the administration.
