Guest Policies

Guests are permitted to visit at any time in all halls. Guest(s) must be checked in at the front desk and remain with their resident host at all times. Hosts must register their guest(s) each time they enter the building, even if the same guest visits more than one time each day. Guests are not required to be checked in at Grand Campus due to the nature of the community. All other guest polices remain in effect.

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.

Check-In/Check-Out Procedures

Residents are encouraged to have guest(s) visit them as long as the following guidelines are followed:

  • Resident meets their guest(s) at the front door in order to check-in guest(s).
  • During check-in, resident must present Student ID and guest(s) should present an EKU Student ID, government issued ID, or other picture ID with date of birth.
  • The host resident is responsible for a guest’s actions, behaviors, and any damage incurred. Guests must remain with the host resident at all times. Unescorted guests will be asked to leave.
  • When guests are ready to leave, the resident will walk with them to the front desk to complete the check-out process.


Cohabitation in the residence halls is prohibited. Cohabitation exists when a person who is not assigned to a particular residence hall room uses that room as if they were living there. The resident’s roommate’s comfort level supersedes all guest privileges. When a guest’s continual presence hinders a roommate’s ability to study, sleep, and/or occupy their room, this will be considered a violation of the cohabitation policy. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Using the room while the assigned occupants are not present
  • Utilizing a key/fob to enter a room assigned to another person
  • Keeping clothing and personal belongings in another person’s room
  • Sleeping overnight on a regular basis (more than 3 nights in a 7 day period)
  • Use of the bathroom and shower facilities as if living in that room
