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 sexual intimacy.
- 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
St. John’s Students
In the residence halls, a daytime STJ visitor will hand his/her StormCard to the Resident Safety Monitor who will verify status and allow entry with host. Upon leaving the building, the guest will hand his/her StormCard to the Resident Safety Monitor, who will complete the visit by signing the guest out of the building. StormCards are never left at the desk.
Resident hosts are allowed to host overnight guests (same gender as host) 20 times per academic semester. Hosts may register no more than three overnight guests in a seven-day period. Guests may be registered as overnight visitors no more than three times in a seven-day period. Guests must abide by the Residence Hall visitation policy. Those not registered online are not allowed overnight guest privileges.
All overnight guests must be registered with the Department of Public Safety by 9:00 PM on the night the guest wishes to stay. The host must use the online guest registration form on MySJU to request an overnight guest.
