Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

To ignite and nurture creative, ethical, scientific minds that advance the human condition.


Intervisitation is defined as the visiting between male and female students in the residential areas of the Academy. Visiting between male and female students in the hall commons area does not require an intervisitation pass. However, if students decide to visit in the wing commons or individual rooms, a pass must be issued by the RC on duty. If granted, an intervisitation pass with the specified time of the "interviz" will be distributed by the RC on duty as long as the roommate does not object. Students will then have the opportunity to host the specific student requested in his/her room for one hour. The RC will only authorize such visitation to those students who have demonstrated responsible behavior.  During the visitation the room door must remain completely open, both students must be visible from the doorway, and they must behave in an appropriate manner. Additional guidelines are posted in each residence hall office. Expect the RC on duty to look in on the students throughout the duration of the interviz. Sophomores are not eligible for intervisitation first semester.

Occasionally, a hall wing may have open house for a special activity.  This must be approved in advance and chaperoned by a staff member.

Monday - Thursday 3:00pm - 9:45pm
Friday 3:00pm -11:15pm
Saturday 10:00am -11:15pm
