At Western, in the residence halls, illicit drug use and underage drinking are taken very seriously, as there are active police officers on campus that are required to be notified when illegal activity takes place.

Expect an MIP (minor in possession) or probation if caught with either an alcohol or drug offense. In terms of parking enforcement, it is very strict. If you are parked in a location that does not match your parking sticker or if you do not have a parking sticker, you will be ticketed. After a number of unpaid tickets or parking in a prohibited location, expect your car to be towed. Follow the rules, and you will be fine.

Visitation Policies
Students are more than welcome to have guests on campus. Simply check in at the desk near the front of your dorm; all you need is an ID from your guest. The only stipulation is that your guest must be of the same sex and cannot stay more than two nights.
