Residence hall students may reserve and use a designated public recreation area in their hall for a private party or social activity. Students should communicate with their hall director to obtain specific procedures on how to reserve a public area for an event.
Students may have small social gatherings in their room or suite in accordance with all applicable state laws and university policies. ORL aims to establish and maintain a positive educational environment in the residence halls. The policy for gatherings in the halls will be continued as long as this goal is not jeopardized.
Residents’ rights to study, sleep and have reasonable privacy within their room will be maintained. These rights supersede the right to socialize. Residents must consult their roommate and suitemates prior to an event to prevent disruptions in the room or suite. Loud or disruptive behavior, lack of cleanliness in the residence halls or drinking habits that interfere with the rights of others are reasons for disciplinary action. Room or suite events are discouraged during weeknights.
Events in rooms or suites are intended to be small due to the space availability and safety and fire regulations. The number of people attending an event must be no more than the room or suite can safely accommodate: six per bedroom, eight per Village Quad, or 12 per Village suite. Residents are responsible for their guests’ behavior. Failure to control guests will result in immediate administrative or judicial action.
