    Security and Curfew

    All residence halls have guards on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Entry is carefully regulated. All guests (including parents, guardians, and siblings) must leave a photo ID and register in the guest log when visiting.

    Students enrolled in Summer Intensive Studies who are 18 years of age or younger at the start of the program are subject to curfew requirements. This curfew has been established for participants' safety. Student Housing will enforce an 11:00 p.m. curfew every night for the duration of the program. Failure to observe the curfew will result in removal from the residence hall.

    Students 19 and older will be assigned to space where they are not subject to curfew and can request overnight guest accommodations on a very limited basis.

    Curfew Policy

    • Summer residents who are 18 years of age or younger as of June 29, 2015, must check in for curfew at 12:00 midnight every night.
    • All guests must leave the residence hall by curfew time. No overnight guests are allowed for students under curfew (including family members).
    • The RA on duty will check each night to ensure that students are in the building at curfew; students are not permitted to leave until 7:00 a.m. the following morning. Breaking curfew is grounds for removal from the residence hall.
    • Curfew residents are required to spend every weeknight in their assigned residence hall. Students are permitted to spend weekend nights (Friday and Saturday) away from the building if their parent or guardian has submitted a completed Weekend Away Permission form by the prescribed time. Students must submit a form every time they will be absent from the residence hall for curfew, including time spent with parents or guardians. See “Weekends Away,” below. Any misuse or forgery of the Weekend Away form is grounds for dismissal from student housing.

    Check-In and Check-Out

    Check-in at the residence halls is between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. If the office is closed when you arrive, you can have the security guard on duty contact the residence hall staff member on duty to check you in.

    Students must check out from residence halls by 12:00 noon. Students can submit requests for a later check-out time to the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life. No late check-out is allowed without prior approval.

    Residence Hall Handbook

    Students enrolled in Parsons’ summer programs in New York are expected to abide by all policies stated in the Residence Hall Handbook in addition to those specific to the program. Students can read the online version of the Residence Hall Handbook or get a printed copy from the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life.

    Weekends Away

    Students enrolled in Parsons’ summer programs in New York who are 18 years of age or younger at the start of the program are required to spend weeknights (Sunday through Thursday) in the residence hall. Students who wish to spend weekend nights (Friday and Saturday) away from campus must have written permission from their parent or guardian at the start of the program. Students are required to return by 11:00 p.m. for Sunday evening curfew.

    A Weekend Away Permission form accompanies housing assignment information. Weekend Away Permission forms cannot be used to break or extend curfew.

    All Weekend Away forms must be submitted by check-in. Failure to observe the Weekend Away policy will result in removal from the residence hall. Any changes to a submitted Weekend Away form must be received by 5:00 p.m. on the Wednesday before the weekend. Any form received after that time will not be accepted as permission for absence during the following weekend. Please note that university offices are closed on Fridays during the summer.

    Residence Hall Policies

    The Office of Student Housing and Residence Life has established policies to ensure that residence halls are safe and comfortable homes for all residents. Any violation of the policies outlined in the Residence Hall Handbook and in the Housing Contract will be viewed by the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life as grounds for immediate removal from the residence hall without a refund. Note: Where applicable, violation of these polices by the guest of a resident will result in the removal of the resident from the residence hall.

    Students will be removed from the residence hall (with no refund) for any of the following offenses: 

    • Consumption, storage, distribution, sale, or possession of alcohol by the residents or their guests if they are under 21 years of age. For students over 21, drunk and/or disorderly conduct will not be accepted.
    • Consumption, storage, distribution, sale, or possession of illegal drugs
    • Sale or distribution of prescription or nonprescription drugs and medication
    • Smoking in any bedroom, suite, or common area inside any residence hall
    • Posing a threat to oneself or to the community
    • Any verbal, psychological, or physical harassment, intimidation, or assault of another person
    • Any form of violence, vandalism, theft, or defacement of any personal or building property
    • Dropping or throwing any object into or out of the residence halls, windows, or both
    • Unauthorized entry into any area of the building, including the roof, other students’ rooms, or offices
    • Failure to comply with requests made by the Residence Life staff
    • Dismissal from any university summer academic program
    • Failure to abide by the guest policy, the curfew policy, or both
    • Creating excessive noise despite warnings
    • Any other reason as determined by the program, housing staff, or both

    Residence Hall Guest Policy

    The following policy has been developed with the security and well-being of the residence hall community in mind:

    • Residents are required to meet their guests at the front desk.
    • All guests, including family members or guardians, must leave a valid photo ID at the front desk. Passports are not accepted.
    • Residents are expected to remain with their guests at all times and are held responsible for the actions of their guests.
    • The residence hall staff reserves the right to forbid entry to any nonresident who violates residence hall regulations or policies or causes a disturbance of any kind.
    • Residents may face removal from the residence hall if a guest violates university or building policies.
    • Residents are allowed to have a maximum of two guests at a time and a maximum of four guests per room at a time.
    • Students not subject to curfew: Residents can have an overnight guest for a maximum of two nights for all four-week programs. Residents must announce overnight guests to the resident hall director, area coordinator, or head resident for the student’s building assignment at least three days in advance.
    • Students subject to curfew: No overnight guests are allowed for any student subject to curfew. This policy applies to family members.
