Guest Policy

< Back to St. George Towers

Guest Policy

This policy exists to allow residents to have guests in a manner that does not infringe upon the comfort or rights of other residents and maintains an appropriate level of safety and security in the building. Being and/or having a guest is a privilege and not a right. Regardless of length of stay, the guest is expected to abide by all college, building and EHS policies, procedures, regulations and standards. The host is responsible for the actions of their guests at all times.

Any guest who violates any EHS/school or building policy while in EHS housing is subject to penalties including EHS and/or school disciplinary procedures and/or legal penalties and will be asked to leave the residence. EHS and/or schools that work with EHS have the right to ban any guest. The management maintains 24 hour security in the lobby as well as surveillance cameras in all hallways, elevators, and common areas. 


The following conditions must be met:

  • NO guests under the age of 18 are permitted to be an overnight guest.

  • It is the responsibility of the host to meet their guest in the lobby and to remain with that person at all times when the guest is in the residence. 

  • If the host departs the building the guest must also depart and is not permitted back into the residence until the host is able to personally escort them.

  • All guests must register at the security desk by showing proof of a valid unexpired photo identification card.

  • When the guest leaves the residence they must be escorted to the lobby by the host and must sign out with security. 

  • No person who is required by law to register as a sex offender may be a guest in any EHS residence.

  • Guests, regardless of their length of stay do not receive an ID card and residents are not permitted to hand their ID to their guest if they depart the building. Guest must be physically escorted by host at all times

  • All guests must abide by the Code of Conduct and any resident found forging their roommate’s signature will lose their guest privileges for the remainder of their stay. 

DAYTIME GUESTS 
Provided that there is no unreasonable interference with the rights of a roommate, a resident may have a maximum of two (2) short-term daytime guests who stay between the hours of 8:00am and 12:00am. Short term guests must leave the building by midnight or they will be considered an overnight guest.
 

OVERNIGHT GUESTS
An overnight guest is a guest who is in the residence between the hours of 12:00am and 8:00am, regardless of whether they stay for a few hours, or sleep in the room overnight. In consideration to the rights of roommates and other residents, there are limits to the duration and frequency of such visits. A resident may have only one overnight guest at any given time. 

Residents are not allowed to have overnight guests during their first week at the residence. This allows new residents to socialize with their roommates, as well as become better acquainted with the residence community. A resident’s school/university may have additional guest policies that may also be in effect. 

We do not provide mattresses or linens for any guest.

Procedure
All residents must fill out an Overnight Guest Form for their guest regardless of guest’s length of stay. All overnight guests must be approved by EHS and/or school staff. To obtain an Overnight Guest Form you can stop by the Student Life Desk.

  • Guests For One to Three Nights: Forms for overnight guests staying for more than 1-3 nights must be submitted at least one hour before the desk closes for the same day of the overnight guest.

  • Guests For Four to Seven Nights: Forms for overnight guests staying for more than three consecutive nights must be submitted 24 hours prior to the guests’ arrival. Guests must also be approved by roommate(s). 

Failure to complete and submit the form in a timely manner may result in guest not being allowed into the building and a $5 penalty, to be paid within 72 hours of guest arrival.

Fees

  • A guest must pay $5 per night for the first three (3) nights. A guest that stays from four (4) to seven (7) nights must pay $20 per night. 

  • No guest may stay longer than seven (7) nights per month with the same or different hosts.
