The campus gate will be locked at all other times unless prior written permission is granted by the President or designee.

Access to the College Arboretum (grounds) may be extended at the discretion of the President or designee.  Access to facilities outside of the normal operating hours would follow the current operating hours procedures for access.

Facilities are available for public use in accordance with State law under short-term (less than three months) and long-term (three months to twelve month) agreements.
