Visiting a Resident

Guest Policy for Fall 2020

Guests will not be permitted in the residence halls, except immediate family members. Visitors from other residence halls will be allowed however room capacity will only allow one visitor at a time. Please keep in mind, this virus transfers quickly when people are moving between sets of people. We want to be able to stay open, the best way to do that is to do everything in our power to make sure we aren’t allowing easy access to this contagion.

Outside guests (defined as any guest who is not a current resident in one of the SCSU residence halls) will be limited to immediate family (defined as parent(s), sibling(s), or designated guardian(s)); no other outside/off-campus guests will be permitted.
