Forbidden fornication

On June 15,1971, the Univer-
sity's Student Services Hous-
log Policy Board lifted a ban
against premarital sex in the
dormns. The ban, which was put
in place by the Board of Gover-
nors of Residence Halls in 1965,
was deemed ineffective and
impossible to enforce.
A policy hoard member told
the Daily at the titme that ban-
ning premaarital sex and cohab-
itation frotu the residence halls
was "useless."
"(The policy) has never
been enforced and cannot be
enforced,' " the hoard member
The decision to ban pre-
marital sex in the residence
halls- along with other hous-
ing policies- was determined
through secret ballot by the
residents of each University
housing unit's residents.

After the decision had been
made, the Board of Governors
echoed the students' decision
calling premarital sex "unac-
ceptable in University housing
Students at the time weren't
even aware that the policy
"I didn't even know they
had such a rule," one junior
told the Daily at the time. "My
friend lived with her boyfriend
in South Quad all last semester
and nobody raised a fuss."
John Feldkamp, then-boos-
log director and policy board
tmember, had a different, more
serious view of the ban.
"(Dormitory residents) must
exercise due regard for the
welfare of their fellow students
and for the facilities in which
they reside," Feldkamp told
the Daily, citing a clause in the

information bulletin about res-
idence hall life.
Feldkamp also said that two
students had been expelled
under the ban in 1968.
Most current students don't
have to worry abouthbeing pun-
ished for engaging in premari-
tal sex in the residence halls. In
many dorms, including Mary
Markley Hall and South Quad,
there are no rules against visi-
tors in the rooms.
But at Martha Cook Build-
ing, a female-only residence
hall, there are still regulations
for male visitors. The residents
must escort their guests while
they are in the building. Male
visitation hours are from noon
to midnight from Sundays to
Thursdays, and are extended
from noon to 2 am. on Fridays
and Saturdays.
