Each student has a responsibility to respect the rights of others to live in an environment conducive to study and sleep, and to therefore keep noise to a reasonable level. Excessive levels of noise have a significant impact on the learning environment, thus, one individual or group’s right to quiet always supersedes another individual or group’s right to create an excessive level of noise.
Typical Quiet Hours are:
Sunday-Thursday (inclusive): 10:00 p.m. – 9:00 a.m.
Friday & Saturday: 12:00 a.m. (Midnight) – 11:00 a.m.
Quiet Hour/Courtesy Hour Expectations:
- When it is not designated quiet hours, courtesy hours are in effect.
- During quiet hours, students are encouraged to utilize the cafeterias and lounges for gatherings to minimize disruptions in the community and may be asked to disperse should their noise be deemed excessive for the time period.
- Some Campus Housing floors may be designated as Quiet Communities, where the quiet hour parameters are extended.
- Students will also be advised of end of term quiet hour expectations for their Campus Housing community.
