Procedure No.: 25.001 Page No.: 1 of 1 Date Issued: 08/01/86 Issued By: J. S. Rudy
Visitation does not permit cohabitation--to physically reside with the opposite sex--in residence halls. Cohabitation is a violation of University policy. Persons-not complying with the policy will be subject to referral for disciplinary action.
The voting for any expansion must take place during the eighth week of the quarter preceding the quarter in which the change will take place. Expansion of visitation for either the Winter or Spring Quarter will require the casting of a positive vote by secret ballot of two-thirds of the residents assigned to the building at the time of the vote (the record of building residents will be furnished by the Housing Office). The administration of the vote will be the responsibility of the Residence Life staff in the hall in coopera- ation with the hall government in that particular building. Contraction of visitation hours can take place anytime during the quarter and will be conducted under the same voting guidelines (i.e., secret ballot, 2/3 vote of the residents assigned to the building at the time of the vote).
In Upperclass halls visitation is permitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week. (This does not permit cohabitation.)
Twenty-four hour lounge and specified public area visitation will be implemented thirty (30) days after the formal opening of housing during the Fall Quarter. Lounge and specified public area visitation will be announced by the Residence Life staff and will not require a vote of the building residents.
