Wesleyan University prides itself on fostering a safe and welcoming environment. Members of the University community are responsible for the behavior of their guest(s) while on University property. Host students are expected to properly register their guest(s) and ensure that the conduct of a guest(s) is lawful and in accordance with local, state, and federal laws as well as University policies. The right of a student to live in reasonable privacy and use their room for academic purposes takes precedence over visitation rights.

Host students should register any overnight guest(s) prior to or upon the guest(s) arrival to campus and provide all emergency contact information via the guest registration form located in the WesPortal. All guests under the age of 18 should submit the online visitation form no less than 48 hours before their scheduled visit and should present a signed copy of the parent agreement portion of the form upon their arrival to campus to Residential Life (before 5 p.m.) or to Public Safety any time after Residential Life hours of operation.

Guests should remain in the company of their host(s) at all times and should properly identify themselves upon request by a University official. A guest’s failure to identify themselves or depart campus when directed to do so by a University official may result in a loss of visitation privileges. Violations of the guest policy could result in the loss of guest privileges and/or a departmental regulation violation for host students.
