Housing reserves the right to restrict visitation for a residence hall, room, or lobby if the need arises.
|a.||Room visitation is allowed only when the Residence Hall Director, Assistant Hall Director or a Resident Assistant is on duty in the residence hall and a desk assistant is available for checking the guests in and out.|
|b.||All visitors will be required to sign in at the lobby desk indicating the room number and person they are visiting. First and last name of the host and visitor is required.|
|c.||Checking-in and checking-out of any guest is the responsibility of the residence hall occupant acting as “host”.|
|d.||The host or hostess must meet the visitor at the sign-in point to escort him/her to the room and from the room back to the lobby at the end of visitation. Both the host and the visitor should leave a picture I.D. at the desk. Delta State students are required to leave their student I.D. cards.|
|e.||All residence hall guests must be escorted to and from host’s or hostess’ room by the host or hostess, and can visit only in the room of that host or hostess unless permission to visit elsewhere is granted by the Residence Hall Director or the Resident Assistant.|
|f.||The host is responsible for the conduct of the visitor while the visitor is in the residence hall. The guest may be required to leave if violating visitation policies or disturbing other residents.|
|g.||No resident is allowed more than one guest without the prior permission of the Residence Hall Director or Resident Assistant.|
|h.||No student is allowed to have visitors in a residence hall other than the one to which he/she has been assigned, without the prior permission of the Residence Hall Director or Resident Assistant in charge of the hall being visited.|
|i.||Residence Hall Directors, Assistant Hall Directors, Resident Assistants, or any person representing the Housing/Student Affairs Office may check rooms where guests are signed in.|
|j.||Unless excluded for disciplinary reasons, students attending Delta State or any other college or university, persons 18 years or older, or any individual of the immediate family 12 years of age or older are permitted to visit the residence halls during approved hours. Each host is responsible for his or her guest’s age if conflict should arise. Exception to this rule may be approved beforehand by the Residence Hall Director, Assistant Hall Directors, Resident Assistant in charge, the Director, Associate Director, or Coordinator of Housing and Residence Life. Participation in
visitation by other than Delta State students will be monitored closely.
|k.||Guests are not to be left alone in residence hall rooms.|
|l.||Residents having guests must consider the rights of their roommates. A roommate should not be asked to vacate the room for another’s guest.|
|m.||Dress for all residents and guests must be in good taste at all times.|
