Students are welcome to have guests on campus but it is the responsibility of the hostess to see that the guest abides by all regulations of the College. A guest is defined as any non- resident of SMWC. The hostess is responsible for the actions of her guest and therefore, if a guest is found in violation of any policy he/she may be asked to leave campus and the hostess may be subject to disciplinary action. The College reserves the right to deny any non-resident the privilege of staying on campus. Guests are not to be left alone in the residence hall and must be escorted at all times.

All Le Fer guests must be signed in at all times at the reception area located on the main floor of Le Fer and escorted by a resident student.* Guests are expected to sign-out and leave campus by the times listed in the visitation policy. Female guests aged 13 years or older are allowed to stay overnight in the hostess’s room as long as the roommate grants permission and the RA/RCA is notified. An overnight guest is allowed to stay on campus for a maximum of six days every calendar month.

Students are reminded that male guests are not allowed to use the community bathrooms on the floors and instead must utilize the restroom located on the main floor or on the ground floor. All students are reminded that they and their guests should consider and respect the rights of other residents with regard to privacy, noise, and personal property.

*Exception: Commuter students are required to sign in at the front desk before going on the resident floors. Between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., they do not have to be accompanied by a resident student. After 6 p.m. and before 8 a.m., commuter students must be accompanied by a resident student. If a commuter student wishes to stay beyond the established sign-out time, they and their host need to notify the resident assistant (RA) on-call. 


The residence halls close at midnight on weekdays and at 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. The same time frames apply to male visitors being on the grounds. Male guests are not allowed on the residence floors at any time except those stated below. Students may have male guests on the residence floors during the following times:

Sunday–Thursday: 10 a.m.–12 a.m.
Friday–Saturday:   10 a.m.–2 a.m.

Female guests staying beyond visitation hours should be registered as an overnight guest in the guest book and the RA/RCA must be informed by the hostess. Overnight guests must be 13 years of age or older. (See Guests section)
