Guest Policy

A guest is an individual who is present in a residential building but is not a member of that building's residential community. Guests must be accompanied by a member of the building's residential community at all times.

New COVID-19 guidelines

Updated March 9 at 12:30 p.m.

Access into residence halls is restricted to residential students within the same community, unless approved through the guest exception process (see below). Non-residents are prohibited until more favorable state and regional pandemic data is evident, including residents of other communities and family members, except in the lobby and main lounge. All lobby guests are required to wear face masks and physically distance (6 feet apart).

Please note: Housing is working to allow residents to visit other communities once 85 percent of all residents consistently schedule their mandatory two-week COVID Test on time.

Schedule your mandatory COVID-19 test at MyWesternHealth today.
