For Residence Halls & University Apartments
Sound carries easily. Voices, stereos, televisions and large indoor gatherings can often be heard next door, above and below you. Remember that while you have a right to listen to music of your choice, other residents have a right to sleep, study or listen to music of their choice without disturbance. You may be asked by other residents or staff to adjust the sound/noise level to reduce the disturbance to others around you. Please be considerate and flexible. The playing of musical instruments is permitted within your room/apartment as long as it does not disturb others
Designated quiet hours are posted in each community, and are from 8pm-7am daily, Sunday-Thursday. During quiet hours, residents should keep the level of noise to a point where it cannot be heard in another student’s room or hallways.
Courtesy hours are in effect at all times. It is important that residents are aware of their responsibility to monitor their behavior, regardless of the time of day, so as to not interfere with the lifestyles of others. If a student or staff member asks you to be quieter, regardless of the time of day, your compliance is expected.
24 Hour Quiet Hours
During finals week, 24-hour quiet hours are observed to facilitate a study oriented atmosphere. Students remaining in the halls after their last exam and alleged to be responsible for causing a disturbance may be required to leave the residence halls immediately.
