Residence Hall Guest Policy
Daytime guests are permitted in the building and in the rooms with the expressed permission from the roommate(s) starting at 9 a.m. everyday and are required to leave by 12 a.m. on Mon.–Fri. and by 2 a.m. Sat. & Sun. unless the guest has received an overnight guest pass as described below.
Regardless of the length of stay, all guests are expected to abide by all LIM College, and EHS policies, procedures, regulations and standards. The host is responsible for the actions of his/her guests at all times. Any guest who violates any LIM College or building policy while in student housing or other areas will be asked to leave the residence hall, and will be subject to all applicable legal sanctions.
All guests must register at the security desk by signing the registration book and by leaving a valid form of current identification for the resident and the guest (this must be a valid, unexpired photo ID). Guests without proper identification are not permitted. The propriety and sufficiency of the identification is within the sole discretion of LIM College or EHS staff. Upon departure, guests must sign out at the same place. The resident must escort guests while inside the building at all times and is responsible for the guest’s signing in and out. Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent or guardian or receive written permission from LIM College’s Office of Residence Life to visit the halls.
Overnight guests will not be permitted within the first two weeks following move-in to the 1760 Residence without written permission from the residence life office at LIM College.
All overnight guests must receive an overnight guest pass which should be carried with them at all times to remain in the building after the designated hours. It is the resident’s responsibility to request an overnight guest pass by completing and turning in the overnight guest request form to LIM College’s Office of Residence Life at least one business day prior to the visitor’s arrival.
As part of the overnight guest form, a resident must obtain a signature from the roommate(s) agreeing to the guest’s overnight stay in the room and the period of time and dates that the guest will be staying overnight. Each resident may have a single overnight guest, with prior written approval from LIM College obtained with the guest form.
In no event may a resident have an overnight guest more than seven nights in any month. In addition, a resident may not have an overnight guest for more than three consecutive nights without prior approval from the LIM staff.
Residents may host two guests for one night by using two of their allotted seven nights (two guests for three nights = six nights). However, no room can have more than double their room occupancy at any given time. No individual guest can stay longer than seven consecutive nights regardless of their host.
There are no fees for an overnight guest the first three nights. A guest who stays from four to seven nights must pay $20/day to the LIM College RD office. The visitor fee will be collected prior to the arrival of the guest if approved. A valid photo ID must be left at the front desk during the duration of the visitor’s stay.
Note: Guests must always be accompanied by the resident host at all times while in the building.
