Folger Residence Guest Portal

Welcome Folger Guest. This portion of the web site is dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable as possible. Please be sure to review the Emergency Information and the Residence Rules and Policies, and then browse the links to local services. We hope you enjoy your stay

Emergency Information

Please dial 9 for an outside line and then 911 if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency. In all other emergencies contact Folger Security, available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, at (202) 675-0309 or just dial 309 on your apartment phone. If necessary go to the front research entrance door of 201 East Capitol Street, SE, to alert the guard on duty that there is an emergency.

Emergencies that should be reported to Folger Security include:

  • Fire (once you have safely evacuated the building, of course)
  • Gas leaks or a strong odor of gas
  • Water outages
  • Electrical outages
  • Medical emergencies
The fire alarms in the buildings are not connected to the fire department, so be sure to call 911 and/or contact Folger Security after pulling the alarm and vacating the building.

In the event of an emergency you should know the ways to exit the building safely and quickly. Please review the means of egress from your apartment now and contact Folger Security if you have any questions.

Folger Residence Rules and Policies

Tenants of Folger properties are asked to remember that these old buildings are sustained by the care and maintenance of the tenants as well as by the Library administration. Like old books, the buildings show use and wear. Help to preserve them for future use by abiding by the following guidelines:

  • For the security of fellow guests please keep the doors locked and the windows closed when you’re not in the apartment.
  • Protect your keys and report them lost or stolen to the Folger’s Security Officer immediately.
  • Please be considerate of your fellow tenants by keeping noise to a minimum.
  • Remember that the Folger apartments are pet-free and smoke-free buildings.
  • Please do not damage or decorate the walls of your apartment by painting, hanging wallpaper or nailing into the walls.
  • Please keep your apartment clean during your stay and when you depart remove (or recycle) everything you have brought to the property.
