The Department of Residence Life has a variety of policies in place that are designed to facilitate a safe, positive living and learning environment for students. Students are required to read and abide by the Residence Hall Guideline Book.

Alcohol is not allowed in the residence halls, regardless of your age. We feel strongly that the use of alcohol is not conducive to your educational experience. If alcohol is found, all students present at the time of the violation will be held responsible. Violations of the alcohol policy will result in discipline, which may include participation in an alcohol awareness program, major violation, or dismissal from residence halls.
Distributing, possessing, carrying, using, or being under the influence of illegal drugs is prohibited. If drugs are found, all students present at the time of the violation will be held responsible. Violations of the drug policy will result in your immediate dismissal from the residence halls.
The Department of Residence Life wants students to feel free to invite guests to campus; however, for the safety of all students and guests, it is important that guest policies are followed.
- Residents may visit each other 24 hours a day, as long as all roommates are in agreement.
- Outside guests may visit during posted visitation hours.
Sunday - Thursday: 8:00am - 12:00am
Friday & Saturday: 8:00am - 2:00am
- Guests must sign in when they arrive on campus, and sign out when they leave a building.
- Guests must be accompanied at all times by their host.
- Residents are responsible for the behavior of their guests.
- Overnight guests are allowed on Friday and Saturday nights. Students must register overnight guests no later than Friday at 12:00pm.
All discipline for policy violations is initially handled by the Residence Hall Coordinators (RHC) on a case-by-case basis. Resident Assistants and Campus Safety Officers assist in notifying RHCs of policy violations, and RHCs meet with students to discuss the situation. Students are notified of discipline in writing.
