The Daily Lobo has questioned the University of New Mexico's sleepover policy in its dorms, asking university officials what it means for same-sex couples. The policy prohibits a person of the opposite sex from spending the night in a student's dorm room, while a person of the same sex can stay over for up to three days as long as he or she checks in with the front desk. According to a school official, the policy is in place to protect roommates' privacy. The school plans to look into the issue, if there even is one.
