Who cleans my room?

You. Each student is responsible for cleaning his/her own room. If living in a suite, the suite resident(s) must clean the suite bathroom. A member of the custodial staff cleans community baths. The Custodian is an important member of our community and a person worth getting to know. Hall staff on a regular basis conducts a room inspection for safety and health.

Where can I find a good place to study?

The Library has excellent facilities and resources for EKU students to utilize. Specific rooms and areas in the halls are designated for study, and all halls follow the established courtesy and quiet hours:

Daily Quiet Hours - 9:00 p.m. to 8:00 am
(The hall councils may vote to extend these hours.)

Each residence hall has one or more study rooms available to residents who ask at their hall front desk.

Where can I find the rules that I need to follow while living on campus?

Rules that students must follow while at EKU are printed in the The Residential Community Guide, the Student Handbook, Housing Contract and other university publications. Many publications are available at residence hall check in, with others being available in the Student Affairs office or at the Housing Office.

What is visitation/open house?

Visitation is a time when a guest is permitted to visit with you in your room. All guests must register at the front desk and be accompanied by the resident who lives in that residence hall. You may only register a guest in the hall in which you live.

Residents with non-registered guests or who fail to escort guests while in the building will be subject to judicial action. Residents who host guests are responsible for the actions of their guests. EKU Housing staff reserves the right to limit the number of guests checked in at one time.

Guests must be 18 or older to be checked in. People under the age of 18 may be permitted in the building if they are with a parent or guardian (who is checked in as a guest) between 10:00am and 8:00pm. Guests under 18 are not permitted to stay in any hall overnight. The number of guests checked in at one time is limited to two people and residence life staff reserve the right to limit guest hour privileges. Double occupancy and simple suite-style rooms have an occupancy limit of 4 persons per room at any given point in time. Super-suite or apartment-style rooms are limited to 2 guests per resident or no more than 12 guests per suite or apartment at one time.

Visitation Hours:

All Halls:

Extended Visitation
7 days a week

Cohabitation (staying as a visitor overnight more than 3 nights in a 7 night period) is prohibited in all halls.

In all halls regardless of visitation hours, you and your guests will need to follow guest check in/out processes as outlined in the Guide to Residence Hall Living.

If I need help whom should I contact?

The Resident Advisor (RA) is available for help and lives within your community. There are a number of RAs in each building and you should feel free to go to any of them. The other staff member in your building is the Residence Hall Coordinator (RHC). The RHC is a live in professional staff member who is available to assist you with any issues that you may have.

Does the University insure my belongings?

EKU does not insure personal belongings and does not assume liability for theft or damage. However, you may already be covered if your parents have a homeowners or renters insurance policy. You may want to check with them.

TOP

May I keep firearms and other such objects in my room?

No. Any objects with potential to cause bodily harm to self or others are not allowed in the residence halls. These objects include but are not limited to: fireworks, explosives, Paint Ball markers, BB guns, shotguns, hand guns, stun guns, knives, bows and arrows, and various martial arts weapons, etc. Persons are prohibited from possessing firearms, explosives, or other deadly weapons on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University.
