Guest and Visitation Policy

When a resident has a guest, she or he assumes full responsibility for the conduct and behavior of that guest even in the absence of the resident, and is subject to disciplinary action as a result of their guest's behavior.

A guest may only remain overnight in a room if she or he has the permission of all the assigned occupants of the room or suite, a Residence Life staff member, and have followed the appropriate sign-in procedures.

Each resident can only sign-in two guests (including overnight). If the resident needs to have more people then he/she can ask his/her roommate to sign them in or ask a Residence Life staff member for permission.

A guest may be denied permission to remain overnight or be a guest in the future by a senior staff member or the Director of Residence Life. The guest shall be informed of the reasons when she or he is asked to leave.

Any person living in or visiting the residence halls without permission is considered a trespasser and is subject to arrest
