May I visit My student on campus?
Family members and friends are allowed to visit dancers at the dorms between 5:00 pm and curfew Monday – Friday and between 1:00 pm and curfew on Saturday and Sunday. On-campus visits must take place in the lobby of Horrell Hall or elsewhere on the Belmont University campus. Requests to visit must be emailed to email@example.com by a parent/guardian in advance (under 18) or the student themselves (over 18) and written permission must be granted by the Head Chaperone or Youth Programs Coordinator. Off-campus visits for all students under age 18, where the student is checked out of the dorms, must be approved in writing by the Youth Programs Coordinator and the student’s parent/guardian. Guests may not visit your dorm room or suite except on Move In/Out days.
Can my family/parents start packing up my belongings early on a check-out day?
Unfortunately, no. Due to updated safety and security policies, on check-in days parents/families will not be allowed to move belongings in or access student dormitories until the official check-in window. Similarly, on check-out days parents/families will not be allowed in the dormitory prior to the official check-out window, including, but not limited to, attempting to pack up a student’s belongings early. Under no circumstances should a parent/family member/friend use a student’s room key to access the building and/or dorm room without explicit permission from, or supervision by, the Head Chaperone or Youth Programs Coordinator. Please plan your travels accordingly. We understand you may want to pack up and begin your travels home as quickly as possible. Encourage students to begin packing the evening before, if possible. These policies are not in place to inconvenience you; rather, they are in place to ensure the maximum safety and security for the students living on campus with us.
Where should I send mail to my student?
Mail and packages may be sent in care of students to the following address:
Please do not send mail or packages to Belmont University. We cannot guarantee the receipt of mail sent to Belmont University.
