2016 Dillo Day Guide for Res Hall Guests

Dillo Day is coming up, and on-campus students may be bringing guests to campus. Individuals entering any residence hall on campus must be a resident or the registered guest of a resident in that building. Students MUST have the proper wristband to enter the building, and all guests must adhere to the following guidelines for registration and picking up their residence hall wristbands.  These wristbands are different from the Dillo Day wristbands which will allow you onto the Lakefill Saturday, May 21. Both wristbands should be worn for the duration of Dillo Day weekend.  Students are allowed to register ONE guest from Friday, May 20, 2016 through Sunday, May 22, 2016. A guest is anyone who does not live in your specific building, may or may not be staying overnight, and all roommates must give permission for this guest to stay overnight.

Students may pick up their residential wristband on Friday, May 20 at the neighborhood desks from 10:00 a.m.–10:00 p.m. Guests must be present and have a valid ID to pick up their wristband. Wristbands can still be retrieved on Saturday, May 21, but must be picked up by the student, with a valid ID, from the RAs at the main door of your building. If you reside in one of the small houses on campus, you may be directed to a nearby building to pick up your residence hall wristband(s).  Students’ Residence Directors sent an email with the link to the Dillo Day Guest Registration form. The forms must be completely filled out or it may impact the registration of guests.

When registering a guest, students will need emergency contact information for their registered guest. Collecting this information PRIOR to filling out the guest registration form is highly encouraged. Guest registration will remain open until Friday, May 20 at 9:00 a.m. Any questions regarding the registration should be directed to the Residence Directors.

Reminder of important policies in place throughout the academic year:

  • All guests must have a valid picture ID to enter the building.
  • Guests must be escorted by their host at all times. Guests will not be permitted to sign into the building without their host being present.
  • Guests are responsible for following all rules and regulations 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 are not permitted to host an event in their room that exceeds double the occupancy of the sleeping quarters or becomes public. 

Please review the Student Handbook and adhere to the State of Illinois "Social Host Law" which applies both on and off campus. Take advantage of the Dillo Day festivities and events put on by Mayfest this week, and enjoy your weekend!
