All St. John’s students MUST use their StormCard as the primary
means of identification. A defective StormCard MUST be replaced to
maintain privileges regarding visitation.
St. John’s University’s mission has a clear focus on the dignity of
the human person. As such, the Office of Residence Life
supports policies, practices and procedures which enhance that
dignity. We believe it is our duty to create a residential living
environment that promotes our students’ academic, personal, social
and spiritual development. We strive to promote this development
within a vibrant residential learning community. Visitation is a
privilege, not a right. Visitors may not infringe on the rights of
other residents to study, sleep or to socialize in their
room/suite/building. Residents are fully responsible for the
actions and behaviors of their visitors.
In support of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and our
University's Vincentian Mission, we are committed to providing a
holistic moral education. Therefore, we do not condone the
following in the residence halls: cohabitation, exploitive
relationships, daytime or overnight visitors/residents involved in
- Visitation hours for STJ students are 7:00 AM – 3:00 AM seven
days a week.
- Visitation hours for non-STJ individuals are 7:00 AM – Midnight
seven days a week.
Hosts are allowed up to two daytime visitors.
- STJ students must be signed in by 2:00 AM
- Non- STJ individuals must be signed in by 11:00 PM
