UPDATE: Guest/Visitor Policy - Residential Students

September 2, 2021

Dear Students,

With recent spikes in Covid-19 cases, we have decided to postpone allowing outside guests into the residence halls until October, 1st 2021.

Here is the good news, no need to stay in your assigned "Res Pod" if you are a resident student, you will be able to move freely between residence halls. We do ask that you remain masked if you are in any community spaces outside of your hallway.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Dean Anne Chapdelaine

Guest/Visitor Policy - The guest policy will go into effect on October 1, 2021. No outside guests are permitted in the residence halls until this date.

The guest policy for the Fall of 2021 will allow for external guests (defined as anyone who is not a Bay Path University residential student) to be permitted within the residence halls. Resident students will be required to submit a ‘request a guest’ form 48 hours in advance of their guests arrival. Guests who are not vaccinated will not be permitted in the residence halls. The “request for guest” form will be reviewed by the residential life professional staff and you will receive an email to your BPU email address with the result. All approved guests must check-in and out with either CPS and/or desk attendants upon arrival or departure from campus.

  • Approved guests must be over the age of 14 years old (per campus guest policy)
  • Approved guests must be able to provide a valid photo ID, vaccination, and telephone number at their time of arrival

Any residential student who brings a guest to campus without following this policy will not be permitted to have their guest enter the residence halls. Failure to comply with the policy will result in the host resident being referred to the Student Conduct system within the Dean of Students office.
