Residence Hall Security
Entrances to all residence halls have security desks staffed by attendants controlling access 24 hours a day, seven days a week while school is in session. Each year, Pitt trains desk attendants in University security and fire safety procedures. All residence hall entrances have security doors that are monitored by both an electronic access system and a desk attendant.
Q: How can I sign in a guest to my residence hall?
A: To enter a residence hall, residents must show their Pitt ID, which is electronically validated for their residence hall, and all guests must have a photo ID. Visitor IDs must be scanned upon entering and exiting the residence hall, and visitors must be escorted by the resident they are visiting at all times while they are in the building.
Q: When may guests visit me?
A: Students must establish and regulate room visitation hours with their roommates. Roommate approval is required for visitors at any time.
Q: What if my roommate and I can’t agree?
A: The resident assistant (RA) attempts to help resolve conflicts involving roommate disputes.
Q: What happens if my guest commits a violation?
A: Residents are accountable for violations of all guests, including those signed in by the resident and those accompanied by the resident, as well as all visitors within a resident’s accommodation.
