Overnight guests are welcome under the proper conditions.  No strangers (uninvited guests) may at any time stay in any of the halls.  Male guests may stay in any of the men's residence halls and female guests may stay in any of the women's residence halls provided they are invited by:

1. A resident of one of the halls.

2. Another Eastern student who has made arrangements with a resident.

3. A faculty or staff member who has made arrangements with a resident.

All guests (including commuters) must be registered with the Resident Assistant, with all forms properly filled out by 8:00 p.m. on the evening before their first overnight.  There is no charge for overnight guests, but if an unregistered guest is discovered, or the guest policies are violated, the student hosting the guest will be fined at a minimum of $25.00 payable to the Student Accounts office.  There may be additional fines. 

Students are permitted to have overnight guests no more than five nights per semester, and no individual person is permitted to be a guest more than five nights per semester. 

Various types of misconduct for which the guests will be asked to leave and hosts will be subject to university discipline include the following (see the Student Handbook for more information).
