Quiet/Courtesy Hour Policy

Quiet Hours: Residence Hall quiet hours are in effect Sunday-Thursday 11:00 p.m.-10:00 a.m.; and Friday and Saturday 12:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. During quiet hours, noise should not extend past approximately two doors down from the resident’s room. Upon reasonable request of either a student or staff member, residents are expected to turn down the volume on televisions, stereos and radios, and to refrain from loud talking or other noise. Floors may vote to extend quiet hours. Each semester for final exams, 23-hour quiet hours begin the evening before the first test day and remain in effect for the duration of the semester until residence halls close for break. The hour from 9:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. is designated as the daily “loud” hour during 23-hour quiet hours.

Courtesy Hours: Students are expected to respect the rights of other students to be able to sleep and study in their residence hall room. Excessive noise or rude or disorderly conduct is unacceptable at any time. If a student is reasonably requested to be quiet by a student or a staff member even if it is not quiet hours, he/she is expected to cooperate and comply with the request.
