A mature attitude is necessary when exercising your freedom and responsibility regarding guests in the residence halls. Visitation procedures are in place to provide a measure of safety for the residence hall community. Please understand that any system is only as safe as those whom are using it allow it to be. Safety is a shared responsibility. Your cooperation in escorting your guest and informing visitors of our visitation/escort policies when entering any on-campus residence hall is expected. Failure to comply with visitation procedures will result in disciplinary action as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
A guest is considered anyone that is not assigned to a specific room. Therefore, a guest can be a non-BU student, family member, BU student, off-campus student, a resident of another hall or a resident of the same hall.
No children under the age of 16 years old are permitted to stay overnight or for periods exceeding one hour, unless special permission is given or it is a recognized university special event, i.e. Siblings Weekend. Violations of this policy may lead to the loss of campus housing.
