English to Spanish translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: "closed campus"
Our schools have a "closed campus" practice. Students are not permited to leave the campus for lunch.

My question is this:
I have seen it translated to:
"campus cerrado"

What do you think? Is it correct?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Monica
campus cerrado
Explanation:
The translation is correct, although this is not a known term, since readers probably won't find this in their knowledge of reality you'll probably have to use a periphrasis to explain a little more...

Explanation:
Como no existe (que yo sepa) una expresión similar en Español, yo evitaría traducirlo. Pondría:

"En nuestras escuelas, no se les permite a los alumnos salir del recinto para almorzar."

Campus con horario de acceso limitado


Explanation:
Se trata de una práctica más común en recintos universitarios norteamericanos para controlar más al alumnado, especialmente a determinadas horas, en parte por razones de economía y de seguridad.
