Parents & Families

Dear Parents and Families,

Living in university housing is an amazing opportunity and experience for your student – one that we hope will be full of learning, meaningful friendships, social development and of course, fun. Your student will navigate many exciting and challenging experiences, therefore, we believe in forging partnerships with both parents and guardians to support their journey in social and academic success.

Visiting Your Student

Many families choose to visit their student throughout the course of the academic year. By reviewing the following guest policy, you will be better prepared when you come to campus. Make plans with your student prior to visiting campus and discuss the date and time of your visit and where you will meet. This will reduce any miscommunication and give your student an opportunity to share your planned arrival with roommates.

  • Bring a photo ID along with you if you wish to visit your student in their residence hall. Guests are not allowed past the Proctor Station without being signed in with a valid photo ID.
  • Children under the age of sixteen are prohibited from staying overnight in the residence halls, but are allowed to visit during daytime hours as long as they are with a parent or guardian.
  • Guests are allowed to stay up to three consecutive nights with their Northeastern student. Please reference the guest policy for more information.
  • Pets are prohibited in the residence halls, so if you choose to bring Fido make sure they have a place to stay while you are visiting, especially if you choose to enter a residence hall.
