Courtesy and Quiet Hours Policy

Page address:

Purple Bar Medium

Every attempt is made to provide you with an environment where you can sleep and study. As such, you are expected to be courteous of others by monitoring your noise level and by responding politely when asked to be quiet. A student's right to sleep and study takes precedence over someone else's desire to make a lot of noise. During Quiet Hours, noise is to be contained within your room or apartment. If you can be heard outside your room or apartment, you are being too loud.


Prior to voting on Community Standards, Quiet Hours for all residence communities are from 10 pm to 8 am Sunday through Thursday and from 11 pm to 8 am on Friday and Saturday. Your floor or building community may vote to increase Quiet Hours. Courtesy Hours are in effect during all times that quiet hours are not.


If after determining Community Standards you find the designated community Quiet Hours do not meet your needs, you may request a change through your Community Council.


Semester end 24-hour Quiet Hours start at 10 pm the Wednesday prior to finals week for both fall and spring semesters.
