Jacksonville State University Housing and Residence Life announced on Wednesday that visitation is now limited to residents of the building only.

This means that anyone living in on-campus housing may only have one visitor in their apartment from the same building at any given time. Overnight visitors are not permitted.

“Regardless of the Precaution Level, students are expected to comply with all University policies, reasonable directives from University officials, and policies regarding recreational and sporting activities,” said the email sent to housing residents earlier today. 

Housing and Residence Life originally announced four stages of visitation the residents will have. Previously, housing started the semester in stage 2. This meant that only enrolled students would be allowed visitation within the housing buildings at any given point. 

If further action is needed, Housing and Residence Life can move to stage 4, which means no visitation whatsoever within the buildings.

The university also announced on Wednesday that all in-person student organization events would be suspended due to “recent trends,” according to Joshua Robison, JSU’s associate dean of students.

Attempts to reach Brooke Lyons, JSU’s director of housing operations, for a comment were unsuccessful at the time of publication. For more updates, please see the JSU Housing website.
