Dillo Day is quickly approaching and we look forward to a great day of music on campus. For the entire Northwestern community to have a safe and enjoyable event, there are some policies that will be enforced in all on-campus residential facilities during Dillo Day Weekend.
Please read and be familiar with the following policies that will be in place over Dillo Day Weekend:
- Each resident may register only ONE guest from Friday, May 19, 2023, through Sunday, May 21, 2023. Even if your guest is not staying for the entire weekend, you are only permitted to register one person (not different people) for the entire weekend.
- A guest is considered anyone who does not live in your specific building, including NU students from other residential buildings.
- All guests must be pre-registered by Friday, May 19th, at 4 PM. Guests can be registered using this link northwestern.erezlife.com (Select “Dillo Day Guest Registration” under the left-hand menu)
- Please note there will be a residence hall wristband system this year. Guests must wear their wristband throughout the weekend. The wristbands are colorized by area color and must be picked up at the area desk. Students and guests will still need to obtain Dillo Day wristbands to attend events on the Lakefill.
In addition to these policies specific to Dillo Day Weekend, please keep in mind the following policies that are in place throughout the entire academic year:
- All guests must have a valid picture ID to enter the building.
- Guests must always be escorted by their host. Guests will not be permitted to sign into the building without their host being present.
- Guests are responsible for following all policies and procedures of Northwestern University. If a guest violates a policy, the host resident is also responsible for the policy violation.
- Residents or guests under the age of 21 are not permitted to be in rooms where alcohol is present.
- Residents must have permission from their roommate(s) or suitemates to have overnight guests.
- Residents are not permitted to host an event in their room that exceeds double the occupancy of the sleeping quarters or becomes public.
- Drinking games are not permitted in campus housing, even if alcohol is not being consumed.
- Residents and their guests may not possess or use alcohol, regardless of age, in any common area of a residential facility including but not limited to lounges, study rooms, hallways, and lobbies.
The entire 2022-2023 Student Handbook is available to view here.
Please also know that the State of Illinois “Social Host Law” applies both on and off campus. Information can be found here.
