The Dorms at the ATC

Any client who is attending the Assessment and Training Center is eligible to stay in our dormitory facility while they are receiving training.  We have two floors of dorm rooms in our Boise office building, approximately 15 rooms in all.  Each dorm room is roughly 12 by 18 feet in size and it includes a small closet, a twin bed, a night stand, a computer desk, a dresser, a swivel rocker, and in most cases a small 2.7 cubic foot refrigerator.  Residents will get their own set of keys including a key to the room, and one to the front door of the building.  Bedding and towels are provided with the room, but clients can certainly bring their own as well.

The third floor is designated as the men’s floor and the fourth floor is for women.  Each floor has a shared common bathroom, with two showers, three sinks and two toilet stalls.  There is also a separate accessible half bath on each floor as well. There are two kitchens on the fourth floor that are available for residents to use and they are fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, microwaves, toasters and so forth.  Residents are welcome to use the kitchens to prepare their meals, all we ask is that you clean the dishes you use promptly so that other students have access to them as well. Residents provide their own food. There are numerous restaurants within a ten block radius of the building as well, if you prefer to eat out. Each floor also has a laundry room with machines that do not cost anything to use.  Residents must provide their own laundry soap and supplies. There are also three different living rooms complete with cable television, DVD players, telephones for local calls, and a CCTV.

As is the case with most dormitory facilities, there are a handful of rules and procedures that residents must follow when they are staying in the dorm.  Quiet hours begin at 10:00 p.m. on weekdays, and 11:00 p.m. on weekends.  Visitors are allowed in the building, but they must leave by 10:00 p.m.  There are no overnight guests allowed in the building, unless they are family members.  If you would like for a family member to come visit you at the Center, simply ask the Program Manager if they can come visit and if it can be arranged, a room will be set aside for them to use.  Family members can stay for up to three nights, once a term.  Any more than that will be at the discretion of the Program Manager.
