Can students have guests in their rooms on campus?
Below is Trine University's guest policy. Please be aware that some of the information may change for the 2016-2017 school year. The most important part of the policy is that you and your roommate communicate and agree on guests.
Guest policy. Guests are defined as individuals who are not contracted residents in university housing. Students are permitted to have two overnight guests on weekends. Guests must be escorted at all times by the Trine student he/she is visiting. Guests who are also current students found to be living in residential facilities without approval will be responsible for paying room and board charges. These charges will not be prorated. Guests are expected to comply with all Trine University standards or they will forfeit their right to guest privileges and may be trespassed from campus. Students may be held liable for damages caused by visiting guests. Roommates are strongly encouraged to talk about guidelines regarding guests. It is important to note that a room is a private space that should be shared equally by both roommates. As a responsible roommate, it is not appropriate to engage in any activity that would deny your roommate access to the room or make them feel uncomfortable while in the room. Children under the age of 13 may not spend the night in university housing. Approval from the Director of Residence Life is required for overnight stays for anyone between the ages of 13 – 18 years of age.
