Responsibility for Guests

Student hosts are responsible for the behavior of their guests, who in turn are expected to conform to the standards of conduct applicable to University students. Speakers who come to campus at the invitation of a student organization are welcome to bring guests to their event. However, in those instances where an event is open only to members of the University community, speakers are limited to a total of ten non-University guests unless special permission for additional guests is granted by the group’s advisor and the manager of the speaking venue. In all instances, speakers who wish to bring guests to events open only to members of the University community must provide a list of guests to the advisor and the venue manager at least 48 hours before the event. If invited speakers are candidates for political office, the guidelines set forth in the University's Political Campaign Activity Memorandum (http://legalcounsel.uchicago.edu/sites/legalcounsel.uchicago.edu/files/uploads/Policies/Political%20Campaign%20Memo%20%28Oct.%202012%29%5b2%5d.pdf) must be followed.
