I don't know about all the dorms but my D is in Rodney and she can turn on and off the heat and A/C. Yes there is A/C in that building. I think they are supposed to keep the heat on in the winter so the pipes don't freeze but sometimes it gets so hot that she has turned it down or off for that matter. Windows open so she can get fresh air. I believe you can find that answer to that question on the housing page of their website so you might want to check there.
