CPW not exempt from dorm security policies
This year’s Campus Preview Weekend is the third to take place since dorm security was fully implemented.
The CPW security policy that has been in effect since 2014 only gives prefrosh card access to the dormitory they are staying in. To access a different dorm, they must be attending a specifically scheduled event and check in at the front desk, or they must be checked in as a guest by an MIT student resident.
Before the current incarnation of dorm security, CPW prefrosh IDs granted card access to all dormitories.
East Campus is an exception to this policy. Due to the layout of that dormitory, it is not practical to enforce the security policy there.
