Failure to comply with group gathering guidelines will result in disciplinary action that can range from suspension of party/group registration privileges and/or suspension of guest privileges to dismissal from housing.

Events will not be approved for any time when classes are not in session, the first week of each semester, and during reading week and finals of each semester.

Any request to register a gathering where alcohol is served requires that all members of the suite hosting the event be 21 years of age.

Common areas such as building lounges may not be reserved for group gatherings.
