Residence hall front desks are staffed by trained student employees between the hours of 8 a.m. and midnight and by professional security attendants from midnight to 8 a.m. Desk receptionists are student employees who are responsible for monitoring access control at the residence hall front desks. The desk receptionists check identification, maintain the computerized visitation check-in system, uphold policies related to security and guest sign-in and serve as friendly campus resources for residents and their guests.

Read the guest policy​​ page from our Guide to Student Housing for full details on guests and visitation.
