On the advice of security experts, and with assistance from a Department of Homeland Security grant, Beth Am has installed a night gate at the Arastradero Road entrance to the campus. Starting in December, the night gate will only be closed and locked when the campus is closed, after all events, meetings and classes have been completed for the day, and opened when the campus is open in the morning. Highly visible signs on the gate will show that the gate is closed. Learn more.
