Each residence hall is designated for either Limited or Self-Regulated visitation. Visitation is defined as periodic visits by a guest of the opposite gender and does not include cohabitation.
Visitation options determine when and if residents may have guests in their rooms. Residents must observe the designated policy for their hall. Enforcement of the visitation policy is the responsibility of the residence hall staff as well as residents. Visitation may be revoked for individuals or groups in living units where continued violations of the visitation policy or agreed upon limitations to visitation on the roommate agreement occur.
Visitation within student rooms, including hours when visitation is permitted, is determined by mutual agreement among roommates at the beginning of the year and whenever occupancy of the room changes.
Guests are permitted in the halls only at the request of residents, who then become responsible for the conduct of their visitors. Guests must remain in the company of their resident host throughout their visit and must be escorted at all times. All guests must abide by university and hall regulations applicable to the resident host. The presence of guests of either gender shall not deny access or entry into the living unit, nor shall visitation cause any undue hardship on any other resident of the room, suite, or apartment. A guest in a room or residence hall is any individual who does not have a current housing assignment in that room or residence hall. In addition, residents of a particular hall are considered guests when visiting with a member of the opposite gender within the same residence hall.
All entrances to residence halls are locked twenty-four hours a day. Telephones at the main entrance of each hall allow guests to call their host or the residence hall front office to enter the hall.
Guests may stay overnight in a student room provided that each resident of the room gives his or her permission. Guests may not stay in university housing for more than three (3) days in any thirty (30) day period except by permission of the building's hall coordinator or assistant coordinator. Guests of the opposite gender may not stay overnight in halls with limited visitation. Cohabitation is not permitted in any residence hall.
