A new study of American Catholic campuses, conducted by the Cardinal Newman Society, finds that 95% of Catholic colleges and universities allow students to visit the dorm rooms of members of the opposite sex at night.
In 54 Catholic colleges– more than one-fourth of the total number– there are no restrictions on opposite-sex visiting hours during weekends, and in most of those cases there are no restrictions during the week as well. The Catholic colleges with no limitation on overnight visits include many of the best-known Catholic institutions in the US, such as Georgetown, Boston College, Villanova, Loyola of Chicago and Loyola of New Orleans.
At some Catholic schools, the Cardinal Newman study reports, students share bathrooms with members of the opposite sex. One Catholic school, Edgewood College in Wisconsin, flouts Catholic moral principles with its “Weekend Opposite Sex/Intimate Partner Visitation Hours”– and makes a point of welcoming same-sex partners.
The Cardinal Newman study finds that although a small number of Catholic schools has maintained the tradition of single-sex dorms with strict visitation policies, in general Catholic colleges are less vigilant than Protestant institutions.
