Guests and Visitation


Guests may visit at the request of the room occupant and must be escorted at all times in any public areas of the buildings. Overnight visitors of the same sex are welcome for two nights in the halls, provided all roommates/suitemates agree. Guest cannot stay more than 2 nights in a 7-day period. No overnight guests are allowed beginning the last day of classes through the end of finals. No guests are allowed during Holiday Break periods.

 

All visitors are expected to observe University policies. Violators will be asked to leave the campus and may be subject to prosecution under the law. The University reserves the right to restrict the activity of any guest. Residents are held responsible for the behavior of their guests at all times and will be held responsible for any damages or violations that are the result of a guest’s behavior. Cohabitation is not allowed.

 

Students and guests of the opposite sex may visit during the following hours:

· Sunday through Thursday – 12:00 pm until 12:00 am

· Friday & Saturday – 12:00 pm until 2:00 am

 

All guests must be 18 years of age or older, unless they are a sibling of the resident and/or a prospective student under the sponsorship of the Office of Admissions. All guests may be required to present picture identification at any time.  All guests must be accompanied by their host at all times.

 

A roommate's right to free access to their room at all times must not be abridged by visitation. A roommate must not be deprived of the right to privacy, study time, or sleep because of a guest. Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action. Persistent refusal to abide by University regulations will result in removal from campus housing, with no refund of monies, including damage deposit.
