I've just got my contract pack for uni and it say visitors are only allowed to stay on a weekend which is fine but staying over night (Friday/Saturday nights only) costs £10 a night. Does your uni charge? Why?

I've never heard of the uni charging...and even if they did how could they possibly monitor it?

They have security staff I think and if you are caught not paying for visitors you 'may be evicted' but not sure how the security works yet I've not been to the accommodation before

That makes no sense. You're the one paying for accomodation already, you should be allowed to have whoever you want over

never heard of this before, three of us slept in my friends room at Uni of Nottingham - had no issue. Then again there is no live security, just a keycard gate

Nope, mine didn't. They said guests should only stay for 3 nights at a time and we should let our resident tutors know, but in reality there was no one around to enforce the rules. Even at my friends hall which had a proper 24 hour reception I just had to sign in, not pay.

don't bother, they won't care

just do what you want guest wise, the only time the university will intervene is if they're getting lots of complaints from your flatmates - so just don't let your guest be noisy, steal food etc

Imagine a ONS sloping out in the morning, then getting stopped by security for their debts...
