Yes, students are expected to follow the rules set forth in the Student handbook, just like they would during the school year.
- How are the halls staffed during breaks and summer housing?
Resident Assistants are on duty during the summer months just like they would be during the academic year. If a problem should arise, contact your RA or Public Safety for any assistance.
- Can I have overnight guests during summer housing?
Yes, the process and rules are the same for summer housing as it is for housing during the academic year. Overnight guests of the same gender are allowed to stay in the room of the host resident. If the overnight guest is of the opposite gender, it is the resident’s responsibility to find another resident of that gender to host the guest for the evenings. You will need to speak to your RA or find an RA on duty to fill out a request for an overnight guest pass.
