In an ever-changing world, Emmanuel College provides an innovative academic environment that sustains the pace.
Guest Visitation Policy
The Residence Hall Guest Visitation Policy is designed to balance the needs and interests of all members of the residence community while supporting residence hall safety, resident comfort, student development, academic achievement, and campus community. Regular visitation hours establish regular parameters within which students can visit with friends and family while maintaining a living environment conducive to privacy, sleep and study. After hours/overnight visitation hours recognize that late-night socializing is an important part of developing community, and that students frequently study into the early morning hours in groups in the residence halls. Finally, the College recognizes that hosting family and friends strengthens long-distance relationships. It is important to emphasize that as a Catholic College, Emmanuel does not condone sexual activity in the residence halls and strives to endow students with the tools, knowledge and resources to behave in a moral, ethical and respectful manner at all times. Further, Emmanuel is committed to supporting resident student rights to privacy, sleep and study. When roommates cannot agree, the right of the roommate to occupy her/his room has priority over the right of the roommate to have an afterhours/overnight guest. Students are expected to bring any problems or concerns to the Residence Life staff. Students who are uncooperative with their roommate, or who violate the guest policy can expect to have their guest privileges and residency reviewed and potentially revoked. In an effort to support first year students during their transition and to comply with the educational mandate set forth by Title IX Legislation, the Department of Residence Life and Housing engages first year students in conversations, workshops and on-line education on topics relevant to student safety, residence hall living, and academic success. Prior to hosting after hours/ overnight guests, resident students must complete this training. Students who complete this training may begin to host guests the Friday night after the first full week of classes.
