Responsible University Officer: Jim Benjamin – Associate Dean of Residence Life

There are no specific hours when students must be in their residences at night, but the residence life staff encourages a schedule of regular nightly sleep as a part of an individual wellness program. Visitation by the opposite sex is allowed; however,  certain procedures are necessary to preserve individual rights and privacy. Therefore, all students and guests are asked to observe visitation regulations. It is each student’s responsibility to monitor and confront violations of visitation policy. Abuse of visitation privileges will result in fines and disciplinary action.

 

During visitation, room doors should remain open. Visitation is by invitation only, and all visitors must leave at the designated hours.  Approved visitation hours are as follows:

 

Bodien, Edgren, Getsch, and Nelson:

 

  • Tuesday and Thursday, 7-10 p.m.

  • Friday, 3 p.m.-midnight

  • Saturday, noon-midnight
