          For the coed private rooms are you able to lock the individual bedroom from the rest of the suite? Is there a separate key you can use to lock it during the day?

          Response from Paul C | Property representative |
          Yes, each bedroom door has its own separate lock and key. No other occupant will have access to your sleeping room.
