Student Handbook - Visitation and Guests

Any visitors must be the guests of the residents of the apartment/building in which they are visiting. Siblings (15 years of age and older) visiting students must stay with someone of the same gender. Guests should be escorted at all times and are permitted to stay provided they observe the procedures, policies, and regulations established by the residents, the staff, and Xavier. Residents are held responsible for their guests' behavior. A resident may have no more than one overnight guest at any given time, with the roommate's permission. 

Any guest of the same gender who stays overnight may do so only with the permission of the roommate. If a guest intends to stay more than two consecutive nights in University-owned housing, permission must be granted from a Residence Life professional staff member. The guest is considered a trespasser and subject to removal if the above procedures are not observed. Members of another gender may be in individual student rooms or apartments and on single gender wings only during visitation hours which are: Sunday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m., and Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. The rights of, and courtesy toward, the roommate(s) will always supersede the right of a resident to have a guest. 

In order to make sure that all residents would be able to vacate a building during an emergency in a timely and safe manner the following guest guidelines have been established: 

  • In rooms that are designated "expanded occupancy," each resident may have one guest - with no more than six people in the room at any time. (If a resident is not sure if their room is expanded occupancy, they should check with the RA or Hall Director.) 
  • In rooms that are not designated "expanded occupancy" but are located in Brockman, Husman or Kuhlman Halls, each resident may have one or two guests, but the room may not have more than six people at any one time. 
  • In all other areas on campus (Bunger Hall, Justice Hall, the Village, the Commons, 1019 Dana, 
    Manor House, and University Apartments) each resident may have one or two guests per person, but no more than ten people per apartment or suite are allowed. 
  • The guidelines for all areas are in effect 24 hours a day.
