Overnight Guests
 

Hosting a guest overnight?

In order to ensure a good experience for our students and any guests, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Register your overnight guest with Residence Life Desk Services at Culby, Houghton or Dryer desk.
  2. Make sure your guest carries a state or government ID for identification purposes during his or her stay.
  3. Host only people you know (family, friends, or guests of the Institute).
  4. You will be charged $10.00 per night (limited to staying 3 nights during a seven day period) per guest (limit two guests per room).
  5. Requests for extended stay must be approved by Residence Life. See the Assistant Dean of Residential Services. Approved extensions will incur a one-time $30 charge.
  6. No exceptions are granted for a stay of 7 nights or longer. The maximum number of nights a guest may stay is 6 nights.
  7. If you host a guest without filling out the Overnight Guest Form with Residence Life Desk Services, you will incur a minimum $50.00 fine.

You are responsible for your guests while they are on campus and for communicating MBI policies and procedures to them. We ask that guests comply with the MBI policies and procedures.
