Access and Visitation Policy for University Housing


All residents must swipe their student ID card to gain entry to the building (at each swipe reader) and be verified by the front-desk worker. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary action.

Residence Hall Guest

A guest of the residence hall is defined as any person who does not currently reside in University housing (residence halls) and further, does not live in the building/unit where visiting. Infants and children under the age of 13 are not allowed in any area of University housing, including a resident's private room.

The right of a student to live in reasonable privacy takes precedence over the right of his or her roommate to entertain people in the room. A roommate's right to free access to the room at all times must not be disrupted by visitation. A roommate must not be deprived of the right to privacy, study time or sleep because of a guest. Students must consult with their roommate before guests are invited into the room.

Overnight Request Procedures for On-Campus Residence Halls


The University does not allow cohabitation and will take disciplinary action against infractions that are reported or come to the attention of housing staff. Cohabitation is defined as a non-resident using a room as if he/she were a resident of that room, which includes: the presence of clothing and/or personal belongings in the room, studying in the room on a regular basis, being in the room when the host/hostess is absent, and using the bathroom facilities as if he/she lived in the hall/room. Students of the opposite sex are not assigned and may not arrange to live together in University housing.
