5 College Freshman

Administration: Everything is how it should be. I feel very safe at this school, it's easy to call it my home

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The dorms are strict with visiting hours until the weekend then there are no curfews. Campus police won't bother you unless you are doing something that is deserving of being messed with. Dorms do not permit alcohol or drug use, but wont call the cops if you stumble in after having one to many unless necessary.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, WKU's campus is average in terms of its strictness. There are visitation policies and policies on alcohol in the dorms (WKU is a dry campus and alcohol is not permitted in the dorms), but unless students make themselves very obvious, they aren't likely to get caught. RAs are generally very understanding because they are students just like you. The thing that they are fairly strict about is safety, though. Although the hours of visitation are pretty lenient, students must have an ID to be checked into the dorms. Some people find this annoying, but checking IDs prevents random people from running around the dorm.

The biggest thing that people get into trouble for is parking illegally. The campus is really strict about it, so students should make sure they are parked in the correct zone! A parking ticket is $50, so you don't want to take a chance.

Visitation Policies
Visitation policies vary by residence hall. Some allow 24-hour visitation, while others have different hours during the week and on the weekends when students are allowed to have male or female guests. Both the guest and the resident have to give their ID (WKU or driver's license) to the people at the front desk, and residents are required to keep their guest with them at all times.
