between religion, technology, and hall access. Turman Hall is Emory’s first freshman hall that included electronic entry. On move-in day, an Orthodox Jewish resident said that he would not be able to use the electronic entry on Saturdays due to his religious beliefs. The problem was complicated by the fact that no external entry keys had been made since they had been replaced by the new entry system. To accommodate the student and his religious tradition, he was issued an entrance key to the building. Religious literacy can be an asset when dealing with student conduct and behavior. Policies for visitation, alcohol, sexual behavior, and gender segregation in the hall may be directly linked to religious teachings.

Housing professionals must not only be aware of institutional policies but should also know their underlying purposes and origins. For some, this may require understanding certain religious guidelines. Religious issues can affect student staff working in the halls.

At The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., RAs are required to conduct hall programming related to the Christian season of Advent. This becomes an opportunity for staff members to support religion in the halls through prayer groups and worship services and to educate all students about the season by means of bulletin boards and passive programs. This type of programming gives both students and staff an opportunity to support a religious tradition while also increasing religious literacy about Advent. Religious holidays may cause
