Each residence hall is equipped with washers and dryers for use by residents. Students are requested to show
consideration for other residents by removing clothes from washers and dryers promptly. Washers and dryers are
OneCard operated. Cowboy cash may be placed on student’s OneCard for use in laundry rooms.
Please ask the residence hall director or the director of housing for permission to post announcements on the
board. Commercial advertisements are not permitted on the bulletin boards or any other place in the residence
hall. Solicitation is prohibited.
Guests are welcome to visit overnight. Hosts need to obtain permission from the residence hall director before
guests arrive and introduce them when they come. Guests are to conduct themselves in accordance with all rules
governing campus students.
No fee is charged for guests who spend the night unless the host fails to register them or unless they stay longer
than two nights. If a guest who stays longer than two nights does not pay the room charge, the fee will be charged
to the account of the host student.
Students who reside in residence halls must show consideration for other students at all times. The hours of 10
p.m. to 8 a.m. every day and Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4 p.m. are quiet hours.
A normal amount of noise is expected in the residence hall and is not questioned. CD/MP3 players, TVs, and radios
may be operated at any time as long as they do not disturb other residents. However, such noises as banging doors
and screaming are not considered “normal” and are subject to question.
If warning is given by the residence hall staff regarding excessive noise and is not heeded by residents, disciplinary
action may be taken. This may include confiscation of student’s stereos, TVs, etc. by the director for a certain
period of time. Any complaints of excessive noise-making should be made to the resident assistant or residence
hall director. Disciplinary action will be taken should residents not heed residence hall staff warnings.

or in any campus housing without the permission of the Student Development Office. If you are approached by
salespeople on campus or in your university residence, report it to the residence hall director or the Residence Life
Visitation in residence halls by persons of the opposite sex is restricted to the lobby areas of each residence hall.
No coed visitation is permitted in any residence hall area other than the lobby except for special, university-
approved open houses. Any open house must be approved in advance by the residence hall director and the
associate dean of students.
Members of the opposite sex should not use the lobbies of residence halls for visitation prior to noon, and they
must leave all residence halls by midnight each evening. Failure to abide by this policy requires disciplinary action.
Students should show consideration for others who may wish to use the lobby areas. Lobby areas are not the
appropriate place for displaying affection toward one’s date. Students are to be dressed appropriately when in the
lobby areas of the residence halls.
