Occasional overnight guests of the same sex are allowed in a resident’s room if they do not create an inconvenience for the resident’s roommate or other residents and if the host has written approval from the Residence Life and Housing Office. Guests must limit their stay to two consecutive nights (and to no more than four total nights per semester) and observe all University rules and regulations. All guests must be at least 16 years of age. The host is responsible for the actions of their guests.
During the first week of the academic year, students are adjusting to the University and transitioning to a new living environment. Therefore, the Residence Life Office prohibits students from having overnight visitors during the housing move-in process and the first week of classes.
If a student feels their roommate(s) are not abiding by the overnight visitor policy, it is their responsibility to notify a Residence Life staff member.
