The Silver Tower is like a boarding school in the sense that the Level Eights have to stay in the dormitories of the Tower overnight for a while. The Level Eights (same as the Level Sevens) are separated from the rest of the school in order to improve their concentration and achieve better results. Their separation is held strictly - interrupting Elite study time merits a week of detention. Other intelligent species are not allowed in the silver tower - even bodyguards like Sandor.
Usually prodigies from the lower levels are not allowed inside, but Sophie Foster was allowed in for her polyglot class, since this class not given for other basic levels prodigies and is held only in the silver tower. Her inflicting class was held in the Silver Tower as well, since her mentor was Councillor Bronte and mentoring in the main campus is not appropriate for him. On those visits she was used to require Master Leto, the Beacon of the tower at the time, to let her in, because she wasn't tall enough to reach the shared DNA panel. At that point she didn't know that Leto is the same person, or persons, as Mr. Forkle.
