Guest Regulation and Registration

Below is the "Guests" section from the Regulations, Guidelines, & Conduct Process for your information.

Guests are defined as any non-resident of the suite or apartment to which a resident is assigned.

Prohibition of Guests and Visitors

The only persons who may enter any on-campus apartment are the persons assigned to that apartment, and the only person who may enter any on-campus bedroom is the sole occupant of that bedroom. All residential apartments will be assigned such that each resident has a single bedroom with its own bathroom. Residents sharing an apartment may utilize the common areas together. This restriction is in addition to and in some ways superseding the existing Guests regulations. The only exception to this prohibition is during the official Move-In period. Guest allowances for Move-In will be communicated as a part of that process.


A guest is defined as any person who is visiting a suite or apartment where they do not live. This includes other SSU students and residents of other suites or apartments.

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no guests are permitted inside any building in the residential community.

The following information governs the presence and behavior of guests: 

  • Residents may be held accountable for violation(s) committed by their guests. 

During normal REACH operations, the following regulations are in place: 

  • *Guests in common spaces are a privilege and must be mutually agreed upon by the residents of the apartment/suite. Barring a lack of “agreement,” there must be no concerns and/or objections. 
  • *Residents may have up to 4 guests at any time. There may be no more than 20 persons total in a suite at any time, residents and guests. 
  • *Guests may stay up to two nights in any given two-week period. Exceptions may be requested from a resident’s Area Coordinator, but are not guaranteed. Residents may be subject to a $50 charge per night for unapproved guests who exceed the length of stay allowed. 
  • *No overnight guests are allowed during finals week. Exceptions may be requested from a resident’s Area Coordinator, but are not guaranteed. 
  • *Guests should not be left unattended in any residential building, room, or apartment. 
  • Based on prior behavior, REACH may designate any guest as a non-approved guest, and restrict them from being present in all or part of the residential community. University Police will also be notified when individuals are declared non-approved guests. 
  • It is a violation to knowingly have a guest in the Residential Community who is non approved.
