  • No more than double the current assigned occupancy of the unit will be allowed. The exception to this limit is in place for single occupancy units only including Kistler, Copeland, Robinson, and Calder in which residents may host up to two guests at a time.
  • Guests must be escorted (e.g., to and from restrooms and lounges) by resident host at all times. Guests are permitted to use lounges only while accompanied by their resident host.
  • Guests may not stay overnight more than two consecutive nights in a row. 
  • Guests who obstruct or disrupt the orderly function of on-campus housing may also be asked to leave by HRL staff members or GVPD.
  • Resident hosts are responsible for any violations or damage caused by their guests.
  • Individual residence halls with Covid-19 outbreaks may be subject to additional guest restrictions as determined by the Virus Action Team.
  • All guests of residents must adhere to the most current Face Covering Policy guidance located on the Lakers Together site.
