Visitation Rules

Residents may sign guests in between 8AM and 12AM (midnight). This includes both Duquesne students and non-Duquesne guests.

  • All guests must be properly signed out by 2AM..

  • All guests must present photo identification and be properly signed in.

Overnight Visits

Guests of the same gender may stay beyond the late night restrictions if they are signed in prior to midnight, there is mutual consent of roommates,  the student has completed an Overnight Guest Pass, and the University's policies on cohabitation/sexual behavior are followed.

Family Members


Resident students may have immediate family members, including spouses, as overnight guests. Any spouse visiting overnight must have prior permission of the Resident Director. Permission must be obtained during weekday office hours. Permission of the roommate(s) is also required.

Space permitting, the spouse of a married student may live in Brottier Hall with the student. The University does not otherwise offer housing for either family members nor children of a student.


Siblings of ages 5-16 years old, regardless of gender, are permitted to stay as overnight guests and require a minor sibling registration form to be submitted for approval to the Resident Director. The form requires the minor sibling's parent/guardian authorization for the minor sibling to stay in the LLC overnight. The approval of the host's roommate(s) are also required on the form.


Children under the age of 5 may visit during regularly specified visiting hours. Children under the age of 5 may not spend the night in a Living/Learning Center.

For the full visitation policy, read the Residence Life Handbook for students.
