  • When a resident has a guest, they assume full responsibility for the conduct and behavior of that guest even in the absence of the resident, and are 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.
  • All non-university guests must present their valid picture identification at the desk to receive a dated guest pass or electronic approval (depending on building). These guest passes are only good for the building and date issued. (which you must carry at all times) and have their host escort them and take responsibility for their actions. Valid picture identification is limited to a drivers’ license, state identification card, military identification card or a passport.
  • Each resident can only sign-in two guests (including overnight). If the resident needs to have more people then they can ask their roommate to sign them in or ask a Residence Life staff member for permission.
  • Guests are not allowed to stay more than two (2) nights in any residence hall within a seven (7) day period.
  • 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 they are asked to leave.
  • Any person living in or visiting the residence halls without permission is considered a trespasser and is subject to arrest.
