Student Handbook

Guest Policy

Revised August 21, 2018

Guests of resident students are welcome on campus providing they conduct themselves in the same manner expected of all Arcadia University students. It is the responsibility of the resident host or hostess to familiarize guests with the University's expectations and regulations.
Resident students are responsible for:

  • the conduct of their visitors
  • any charge that may result from their visitor’s stay on campus
  • assuring that guests are properly registered at the main desk in the residence halls
  • escorting their guests at all times
  • assuring the housing of a guest does not infringe upon the rights of others, including residents of the floor, and particularly roommate(s).

In the event a resident hosts a guest, it is the responsibility of the resident to monitor their guest’s behavior. Staff reserves the right to ask guests to leave if the guest is disruptive to the community. The host student will be held disciplinarily responsible for his/her guest’s behavior, including violations of the Code of Conduct.

Residents may not host more than three (3) guests at any one time in University housing. The University reserves the right to deny access to any guest if it is reasonably determined that such person has disturbed, or is likely to disturb or disrupt other students residing in campus housing. Guests may not utilize campus-housing facilities for more than two nights in any seven-day period without the permission of the appropriate Area Coordinator and other residents of the space.

Children under the age of 12 years old may visit University housing for up to three (3) hours. For overnight visits or longer visits, the appropriate Area Coordinator must be given advance notice and authorize access for the child. This includes identifying the person who is responsible for the child.
