Noise and Quiet Hours - Residence Hall Policy
Any activity such as playing stereos, watching television, playing a musical instrument, yelling, tap dancing, slamming doors, horseplay, running or any activity that creates a disturbance is prohibited in the residence halls and areas surrounding residence halls, including (but not limited to) designated smoking areas, recreational spaces, and green spaces. Stereo speakers should not be faced out the windows. At all times, general courtesy should be exercised. Students are expected to demonstrate respect and comply with a request to reduce noise if asked by other students to do so. During finals week of each semester, all halls will abide by a 24-hour quiet hour policy. At the beginning of the year, default quiet hours for all buildings will be 9:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. on Sunday through Thursday and midnight to 10 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. These times will be subject to change through community contracting.
