Alot of places say that you have to let your halls warden know and stuff like that but I dont know of anywhere where that is actually enforced.

For the most part, unless someone you live with complains you and your guests can come and go as you please. I know quite a few people who actually moved their boyfriends/girlfriends in.

In general most universities don't officially allow guests to stay over night or you have to sign them in...all in case of fires/evacuation to make sure they have an appropriate head count. But, in all honestly EVERYONE has people to stay over and don't bother to make it known to the powers that be.

Best to check the forum of the uni you're planning on attending to see how strict they are. Whenever I had my boyfriend to stay when I was in halls I just made sure i shoved the sleeping bag under the bed if we had a fire alarm cause they checked our rooms. I doubt it'd be an issue in most places.

The halls at two unis I've been to (the one I go to) Manchester and (one my friend goes to) UCLan weren't bothered. I think officially (at least at Manchester) you're supposed to let the warden know if you have anyone staying but no one bothers and guests are a pretty common occurrence.

heh, I remember when I was staying at my sisters in Cambridge.My sister lived above 'The Eagle' down the street that comes off the one that King's is on, with the backway to Corpus Christie.

We were all in her room, and the fire alarm went off in the morning, and the porters didnt know we were in there. So, whilst all the students were lining up, my mum, me and 2 sisters run out in our pyjamas, and those of you that know that area will know that there is a walkway there through to the centre, so we ran down there and hid in the doorway of a cafe.

So the owner of the cafe turns up to open it, and finds 4 people sat in her doorway. She was wondering what the hell was going on.

The porter saw us in the end.

Nah so long as you cool it with your flatmates (always nice to ask first, it's your room but their flat too - be polite!) it won't be a problem, I've stayed over at Coventry, Manchester and Lincoln before and not been signed in. It's just because of fire alarms

(obviously don't take the wee and proper move someone in, that's a bad flatmate award rentwise)

Damn, I was hoping so, so I could use the classic 'Pics-or-it-didn't-happen' card :p:

As for me, friends have said to me they want to stay over whilst I'm at uni starting in September, looks like I don't have much of a choice :cool:
