Requesting an Overnight Guest

To submit overnight visitation requests, you will:

  • Log into your MyHousing account through BlazerNet
  • Once in MyHousing, click the Submit An Overnight Request button.

After you have submitted your overnight request, your roommates/suitemates will receive an email prompting them to approve the request. An overnight visitation request IS NOT APPROVED until all occupants in the room/apartment/suite have completed the approval process.

Once all occupants have approved the request, you will receive an automated approval email, which you must show to the residence hall front desk staff when checking in your overnight guest.
