Kent Halloween is set for Saturday, Oct. 31, but students living on campus still have time to get prepared.

Students are allowed to have up to two guests registered to visit for the night and will be responsible for the behavior of their visitors. A guest is anyone who does not live in the same hall as the student.

There are requirements that must be met with the registration.

“(Students) must register guests by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29,” said Brian Hellwig, assistant director of residential services. “(Students) will need to pick up guests’ wristbands between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. in (their) building’s Resident Hall Director Office.” 

Hellwig said that on the night of Halloween, all exterior doors will be locked and students will have to enter through the central door. All resident assistants will be on duty throughout the night compared to the normal two on an average night.

Students can register their guests online.
