In order to further create a safe campus environment, the Office of Residential Life is adding a new visitor pass to their residential guest policy, in addition to the guest registration form.

The Office of Residential Life has updated their residential guest policy, now requiring all visitors who do not attend the university to go through a registration process.

In an email sent out on Jan. 27, Tammy Mulrooney, associate director of residential operations, detailed the new steps which residential students will have to go through in order to bring people from outside the campus into their residence.

Visitors should fill out the guest registration form prior to arriving on campus. The form can be found through myHousing under the Documents and Resources tab, and it must only be filled out once per guest.

New to the guest policy is the visitor pass, also located through myHousing. The visitor pass cannot be completed until after the guest registration form is filled out. Visitors are expected to have a device on hand to be able to show university officials their visitor pass whenever prompted.

All information pertaining to the updated residential guest policy can be found on pages 175 and 176 of the student handbook. Infractions of the guest policy will be cause for a student conduct hearing.
