Visitor Policy

This policy exists to allow residents to have visitors 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 visitor is a privilege and not a right. Visitors are expected to abide by all college, building and EHS policies and procedures. The host is responsible for the actions of their visitors at all times.

Any visitor 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 visitor.

It is expected that residents having visitors know and abide by the Visitor policy, plan, be courteous to one another, communicate with their roommates, and make compromises when necessary. EHS reserves the right to change policies due to resident/visitor behavior.
