Minors have an entirely separate housing buildings than adults and are again separately by gender, with chaperones living on every floor and every entryway. Minors have a staff dedicated to them specifically for lights out times, room sweeps, morning call times, class checks, etc. Parents cannot be housed with minors for liability purposes, all adults must be housed separately.
