How will I know the residence hall policies and procedures?
The housing policies and campus community standards are posted in the online Student Handbook and will also be explained to you in your first floor meeting when you arrive on campus.
Is alcohol allowed on campus?
No, Centenary College is a dry campus. Alcohol is not permitted on the grounds or in the buildings, including the residence halls. Move information is available in the Student Handbook.
What is the visitation policy?
Opposite Sex Visitation
Visitation hours are 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. daily for Hardin. All other halls have 24 hour visitation with roommates consent.
Students are allowed to have guests of the opposite sex in their residence hall lobby twenty-four hours a day. After the official visitation hours, a guest in a lobby must be in the company of his/her host. Overnight sleeping in the lobby area is prohibited.
Students may have overnight guests of the same sex. All overnight guests, even one staying in the room of the host or hostess, must be registered with the Office of Residence Life and Housing. Guests may stay on campus for no more that three nights. Exceptions must be approved in writing by both the Director of Residence Life and the host or hostess's roommate.
All guests, whether staying overnight or just visiting, must comply with our residence and campus regulations; the student host or hostess will be responsible for any infraction by his/her guest(s).
Quiet Hours are in effect from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. each weeknight and from midnight to 10:00 a.m. on weekends. Hall Councils may modify the quiet hours of their building subject to approval by their Area Coordinator.
Courtesy hours are in effect at all times, and students must reduce excessive noise that disturbs others.
More information is available in the Student Handbook.
There is no smoking permitted inside any of the residence halls. Smoking is only allowed in the patio areas of James and the north east side of Cline (in the gazebo area). No smoking is allowed on porches or in Cline's courtyard.
