Noise

You share relatively close quarters with many people in a residence hall. Consideration with regard to noise is vital to maintaining the quality of your environment. Noise created by an individual or group greatly affects other members of your community.

It is your responsibility to request the termination of any unreasonable noise. It is then the responsibility of any resident who is asked to cease activities causing noise to abide by the request. If a disturbance persists, you should notify the front desk in your residence.

Every building has quiet hours weekdays from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m., Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday nights, quiet hours start at 1 a.m. and continue until 11 a.m. the following morning. These hours may vary depending on the rhythm of the academic year (e.g. 24-hour quiet hours during exams). Stereos should be accompanied by earphones so that their use need not disturb anyone.

Stereos, radios, TVs, musical instruments and all conversations should not be audible beyond your room. Congregating in hallways and shouting from windows is prohibited. All residents are expected to adhere to the expectations of quiet hours; violations may result in a request to store or otherwise remove speakers from a residence room along with disciplinary sanctions.
