The University of Tampa welcomes visitors who come to campus for limited periods of time to participate in educational programs and activities and/or to conduct business. Visitors can include, but are not limited to, non-registered students, friends, spouses, children, guest speakers and UT-sanctioned event participants.
For the safety and security of campus, individuals are required to have identification on their person at all times. Campus Safety and/or campus administration may require a visitor to identify the academic or business purpose associated with the visit and present a valid government-issued ID upon request. Failure to do so will immediately prohibit the visitor’s presence on campus.
All visitors must abide by UT policies, procedures and rules, including rules governing student conduct.
Visitors arriving to campus for an Admissions-sponsored tour or event should contact the Office of Admissions for parking information.
All other visitors bringing a vehicle to campus are required to complete and submit the following form at least one business day prior to your expected arrival on campus. All vehicle information must be included or you will not receive a pass. If you have any questions regarding parking, please contact Campus Safety at email@example.com.
Visitors must be escorted by a UT community member at all times while on campus. Visitor conduct must not interfere with the educational environment or mission of the institution. Presence in classrooms is strictly limited to students enrolled in the course and/or visitors with a legitimate academic purpose.
Students may have guests or visitors (including overnight) with prior authorization from their roommate(s). Guests are defined as any persons who are not affiliated but invited to The University of Tampa by a member of the University community. Visitors are defined as any persons who are visiting campus and hold a relationship with The University of Tampa.
Guests and visitors in the residence halls are not a right but a privilege granted with the agreement of the roommate(s). Guests and visitors are not allowed in a room unless all occupants of that room are in agreement. All guests and visitors are subject to University regulations and residence hall policies.
Students are responsible for the actions of their guests. Guests and visitors must be escorted in the residence halls at all times. Visitors may stay a maximum of three consecutive nights and 15 total nights per semester in the residence halls. Students are not permitted to give their Spartan Cards or room keys for a guest or visitor to access the residence hall or room under any circumstances.
If a student feels his or her roommate(s) are not abiding by this policy, it is their responsibility to notify an Office of Residence Life staff member. During the first week of the academic year, students are adjusting to the University and transitioning to a new living environment. Therefore, the Office of Residence Life discourages students from having overnight visitors during orientation and the first week of classes.
Visitors under the age of 18 who are not currently registered UT students are not permitted on campus unless the minor is accompanied by a UT community member, or the minor is authorized to attend a University program, sanctioned event, admissions visit or other campus visit.
