Guest Expectations

  • Guests are not permitted in the residence halls except for those assisting the student during the initial move-in process.
  • Guests from other residence halls will not be permitted in halls they do not live in.
  • Residents from within your building are allowed as guests in your room, however, residence hall rooms (including Red Cedar suites) may only have as many people in the room as its standard occupancy allows. (i.e.: two people per traditional style room, including extended doubles).  Any additional people in a residence hall room must be agreed upon by both roommates.

    • Double room occupancy - 2
