Overnight Guest Policy

  • Overnight guests need advance and explicit written consent of the roommate, are limited to two per resident, and may not remain for more than three consecutive days. Forms can be obtained from the hall office or downloaded here. Anyone who visits a room that is not their own after 12:00 midnight and before 5:00am is considered to be an overnight guest.

    The rights to sleep, study, and have privacy supersede visitation privileges.

    Guests entering the building must be escorted by their host or hostess at all times when they are in the building. Residents are directly responsible for the actions of their guests. Residents may face disciplinary action and be held financially responsible for any behavior of a guest that results in property damage. The university reserves the right to deny access to any guest if it has been determined that he/she has disturbed, endangered, or disrupted residents.

    Individuals under the age of 18 and are unaccompanied by their legal parent or guardian wishing to stay overnight are required to complete the Minor Visitation Permission Form. This form must be completed and signed by a legal parent/guardian and should be presented to the front desk of the community in which they are staying. Both the host and the minor are expected to follow all IUP policies.

    The University reserves the right to deny access to any guest if it has been determined that such a person is disturbing, dangerous or disruptive to the residents or the facilities.
