A guest is defined as any person who is not officially assigned to live in the residential house hosting the event. This includes other Smith students, children, relatives of Smith students and Smith alumnae. Smith students must present their Smith I.D. All non-Smith students must present photo I.D. and sign in with their Smith host. For open social events, House Social Event Coordinators must have at least two people at the door at all times checking photo I.D.’s and ensuring that all guests sign in with their Smith host. All guests who have signed in will be given a bracelet upon admittance. The Smith host of a guest is responsible for the conduct of that guest. An event sponsor must be prepared to send away uninvited guests, guests without proper I.D. or guests who are causing a problem in the house.
OPEN HOUSE PARTY
For an open house party, any Smith student may attend without being on a guest list. Off-campus guests who are invited by Smith students must be accompanied by their Smith host and must sign in at the door. Smith students are allowed to host three (3) at an open party. Residence Life reserves the right to review this and make appropriate changes when necessary.
CLOSED HOUSE PARTY
For a closed house party, houses must have a pre-established guest list identifying everyone invited from outside the house.
