A guest is defined as any individual who is not a contracted resident of the specific residence hall, floor or room in question. Each guest must have a resident host and be escorted at all times on residence hall floors (and must be escorted in public areas from midnight until 7:00 a.m.) Residents are responsible for notifying guests of University and residence hall policies and procedures and will be held accountable for the behavior of their guests. Unescorted non-residents will be required to leave the building. Students may entertain their friends in their rooms and visit in other rooms at any time, as long as consideration is given to the rights of roommates, suitemates, and other floor members, and the community standards to which they have agreed. Rights to sleep, study, and feel comfortable in one's own environment take precedence over social uses of a room. Residence hall keys or keyless entry devices (prox keys/cards) may not be given to a guest for any reason. Overnight guests are permitted if it is acceptable to roommates. Guests may stay no more than two consecutive nights. Guests are expected to use facilities appropriately. Overnight guests are not permitted before classes officially begin each semester, after classes officially end, or during finals week.
