Guests and Visitors
Guest: A guest of Elizabethtown College is defined as any non-Elizabethtown College student visitor who enters a residential facility or attends a college event not open to the public.
Elizabethtown College students who sponsor a guest must accept full responsibility for the guest‘s behavior. If the guest violates the student Code of Conduct or other College policies, the student host will be held responsible. A student must have approval from his/her roommate prior to inviting a guest. A student‘s privilege to have a guest is, in all cases, superseded by the roommate‘s right to the uninterrupted use of the room. Overnight guests are permitted to stay a total of three nights during a one-month period.
Guests from off campus must be at least 18 years of age or enrolled at a college or university. Students may petition the Office of Residence Life for special permission to host a guest who does not meet these criteria. This petition must be made in person by the EC student host to the Director of Residence Life at least three days in advance of the visit. (Note: Prospective students will be registered for visits through the Office of Admissions and special guest registration will be available for Lil‘ Sibs Weekend through the Office of Student Activities.)
Guest Registration and Guest Pass: All guests must obtain a Guest Pass. To obtain the Guest Pass, the guest must show a valid photo ID (valid college/university photo ID, driver’s license or other government issued ID) to the Campus Security Dispatcher or a Residence Life Staff member on duty in any of the residence halls. The Director of Residence Life registers all guests under the age of 18 who are not enrolled in a college or university. This registration must be completed in advance as described above.
Guests are required to carry the Guest Pass with them at all times while on campus and to show their passes when requested. To attend any campus event not open to the public, the guest will be asked to show the Guest Pass.
Guests may be asked to leave campus at any time by any Student Life or Campus Security staff member.
Student Visitor: A student visitor is defined as any current Elizabethtown College student (commuter or resident, full or part-time) who visits or stays overnight in a residence hall to which he/she has not been assigned.
A current EC student who wishes to visit or stay overnight in a residential facility other than the one to which he/she is assigned, must register with the Residence Life staff in the host student‘s building. A student must have approval from his/her roommate prior to inviting a visitor. A student‘s privilege to have a visitor is, in all cases, superseded by the roommate‘s right to the uninterrupted use of the room.
Current EC students visiting residence halls must be escorted by the host student and, after midnight Sunday through Thursday or after 2:00 a.m. other nights, they must be registered as an overnight visitor. A valid Elizabethtown College ID must be presented to the residence life staff member on duty. Overnight EC student visitors are permitted to stay a total of three nights during a one-month period.
