Samford University’s visitation policy does not allow members of the opposite sex to visit each other in a student’s room or other nonpublic areas of residence halls or apartments except at designated times. Special days and hours are designated each term in which inter-residence hall visitation is permitted. Students participating in the visitation period must sign their guest in and out in the area office. While a guest is in the room, the door must be propped open a minimum of six inches. All guests must be accompanied by their host at all times during the visitation period.
