Residence Community Policies


UHS places a maximum in the number of occupants that may be in a room or apartment at any one time. Residents may have up to two (2) guests at any time. Occupants exceeding this limit are considered a party. A party is defined as a gathering in a UHS facility at which there are more than six people in the Classics or CV2 residence halls; no more than sixteen people in the CVA or CVB apartments or the CVC Suites at any time. This number includes residents of the room and their guests.  

UHS allows 24-hour visitation for guests, but does not permit cohabitation. Residents may have overnight guests stay in their room for up to three nights within a seven-night period and for up to 15 nights total per semester. No overnight guests are permitted during finals. Residents in violation of this policy may be subject to cost recovery and other fines in addition to disciplinary action. All roommates must be consulted and agree to guest visitation.   

A visitor or guest is defined as any person who is visiting a suite or apartment where they do not live. This includes other SJSU students and residents of other campus residential halls/suites or apartments. Residents are considered the hosts of their guests and, as such, must accompany their guests at all times while in UHS facilities. Visitors are only permitted to enter a building with the escort of the host. Entrance by any other means is not permitted. 


The residence halls and apartments have lounge spaces.  These spaces can be accessed by SJSU residents. Each lounge space has a maximum number of residents or guests who may use these spaces at any given time. Residents using the space will ensure that they do not exceed the maximum number of people allowed in the space.
