Students should register their guests in advance in person with the Department of Student Services. The office of Residence Life has the authority to grant overnight guest approvals. Please refer to Residence Life or the Student Handbook page 43, for all overnight guest regulations before making a request. The Office of Residence Life is located in the upper level of the Student Union inside the Student Services Office. The office hours are from 8:30am-5:00pm on days the University is operating normally. For after-hours requests the Residence Life Coordinator on duty must be contacted to approve the overnight guest request. The RLC on duty can be reached through any Resident Assistant, by dialing extension D-U-T-Y (3889) from a University phone, or by calling the RLC duty phone at 815-483-4231.
Once an overnight guest is approved and the guest wishes to park their vehicle on campus overnight he or she must acquire an Overnight Parking Pass. There is no charge for this pass. Every guest should receive a Resident Student Guest Pass after he or she has been approved to stay overnight. This serves as a temporary student ID and should be carried at all times. This pass will also serve as proof of overnight approval which is required in order to receive an overnight night parking pass. Overnight parking passes are issued by the Residence Life staff at the time of guest approval. The overnight parking pass is valid for 24 hours after the time issued, and should be placed on the dashboard of the guest’s vehicle in plain view. Guest parking is only allowed in posted Visitor parking areas.
