PROPOSED GUEST POLICY REVISIONS!

The following is the proposed revision to the guest policy. Draft revised as of March 26, 2014.

**This draft is pending approval of the College Division Heads**

Guest Policy

 As a Catholic college, Stonehill is committed to respecting the inherent dignity of each person, and this value must be of greatest priority to all of our students.  For Stonehill resident students, the right to sleep, study, and remain in one’s living space should always take precedence over the privilege of having guests.  Furthermore, reflective of Catholic values and moral teaching, Stonehill encourages relationships between young adults that foster physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being and, as such, the College does not permit cohabitation.

A guest can be defined as another Stonehill student not assigned to a particular room, a non-student, a family member, an alumnus, etc. All non-residential student guests must be registered in accordance with the guest registration process and must carry a valid photo I.D. and approved guest pass at all times. Individuals who have been trespassed from the College or are restricted for any reason may not be registered as a guest.

Whether during the day or overnight, guests are only permitted to be in an individual residence hall room with the consent of a resident’s roommate(s). Students are expected to communicate with each other in order to work out arrangements for guests within a shared room.  Members of the Residence Life staff are available to assist students who may require support or guidance in working with a roommate about the presence of guests in their shared space/suite/house, especially in cases where a roommate displays a lack of consideration for others or abuses the privilege of hosting guests.

Students are permitted to host no more than two guests during any period of time. Guests cannot stay beyond two days in a one-week period.  If a guest is under the age of 17, the student must obtain permission from his or her Area Coordinator or Residence Director.  As is the expectation with our students, guests must use a bathroom designated for their gender.

Students are responsible for the conduct of their guests and for ensuring that guests adhere to all College policies.  Student hosts must be with their non-student guest(s) at all times unless authorized by the Residence Life Office.  If a non-student guest is found without a host or in violation of College policy, he/she may be immediately removed from campus.

Students in violation of this policy are subject to the College’s Community Standards process and may receive sanctions including, but not limited to, loss of guest privileges.
