The residential environment is one meant to be supportive of the academic mission and focus of the University. As such, noise or other activities
that are excessively loud or bothersome to other people are strictly prohibited at any time.
During quiet hours all community members should be committed to upholding the spirit and intent of these hours. Playing loud music, loud talking in the hallways/common areas, unregistered social functions, slamming doors, etc., are all examples of activities that should be avoided during quiet hours.
- Quiet Hours –
- Sunday – Thursday: 10 p.m. to 8 a.m.
- Friday and Saturday: 2 a.m. to noon
- On the last day of classes each semester, 24-hour quiet hours are in effect until the end of the exam period. The residential environment
should be completely quiet during the exam period.
- Courtesy Hours – 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
Personal amplification systems, including stereos and radios, may not be played loudly at any time, be placed in windows of Residence Life and Housing facilities, or be used with the intention of entertaining persons outside the resident’s or organization’s room/space. While items such as subwoofers are not prohibited, the use of these devices may never infringe upon the rights of others to reside in peace.
- Amplified bands and systems are only permitted in the student organization lounge spaces during registered events.
Residence Life and Housing staff members will, in an effort to maintain an environment conducive to academic pursuits, confront and address all noise issues brought to their attention in the residence hall. In addition, all members of the community are encouraged to actively confront others who may be in violation of the above policy.
