Students and employees have access to all campus facilities, except where restricted by schools/departments. Access to the residence halls, however, is limited to student residents and their guests, according to housing procedures. (See housing brochure and license agreement )
If the student is an on-campus resident the visitor will remain at the gate and Campus Safety will contact the Resident Assistant on duty to locate the student. If the student cannot be located then the guest will be advised to contact the student by phone or other means until clearance is made before the guest is permitted on campus.
If Campus Safety has advance notice from the Housing Office of a visiting guest, the visitor will be allowed on campus, and directed to the appropriate housing facility. The name and room number of the student will be noted.
Students living on campus may not permit another person to occupy his or her respective room as a residence at any time. Students who do not register their guest will incur a $35 fee for each night of violation of the guest policy.
In order to be admitted at the gate, guests must know the location and type of performance and the host student’s name, if applicable.
