Guest Policy

Students are allowed guest visitation in the residence halls seven days a week. Students are allowed to have overnight visitation for a maximum of three nights per week. No guest may stay in a residence hall room unless the student host is there at all times. Any student inviting a guest for visitation must agree to insure the rights of her roommate. A roommate must have total access to the room at all times and must not be deprived of the right of privacy, study time or sleep. Furthermore, a roommate should not be made to feel uncomfortable in anyway because a guest is present. When a roommate’s rights are abridged or infringed upon, the University views this as a serious infraction and will take disciplinary action against all offending parties, including loss of visitation privileges for a semester or entire academic year.

All guests must be signed in and signed out by Campus Public Safety or Desk Duty worker. Sunday-Thursday you may sign in your guest with Desk Duty between the hours of 7:00pm-midnight. On Friday and Saturday night, Desk Duty is available from 8:00pm-1:00am. If someone is not available at Desk Duty, then you must sign in your guest with Camus Public Safety. Failure to do so could result in loss of visitation privileges.

Guests must be over the age of 14 years to stay overnight. Guests of Bay Path University resident students who are high school age (14 - 18) or older are permitted to stay overnight with the permission of the Director of Student Life or designee. Student hosts must accompany their guests as they travel within the residence hall. Students will be held responsible for the conduct of their guests while on campus and will be subject to the appropriate level of disciplinary action based on the guest’s infraction.
