As the residence hall provides a community experience, it must also allow residents to have an appropriate living and learning atmosphere for studying, sleeping, and relaxation.
Courtesy hours are in effect 24 hours a day. Students are expected to maintain a reasonable noise level and respect others’ needs in the community.
If there is a problem with noise:
- Inform the resident(s) that the noise is disrupting others
- If informing the resident(s) is unsuccessful, please visit the Information Desk to contact the RA on Duty.
Quiet hours are:
Sunday - Thursday: 10:00 p.m. - 8:00 a.m.
Friday - Saturday: 12:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.
During quiet hours, sounds created inside a resident’s room should not be heard outside of the room or above or below.
Extended quiet hours are in effect 24 hours/day beginning 8PM on the Sunday of the last two weeks of regular class meetings and remain in effect until the residence hall closes for break.
The Director of Residence Life may impose changes to quiet hours after consulting floor or building residents.
University Housing staff may enter a resident’s room to investigate a noise complaint. If residents are not in the room, the staff member will take any necessary action to resolve the problem and will document the situation.
Residents who violate the quiet hour policy are subject to room reassignment or disciplinary actions up to termination from housing.
