Courtesy & Quiet Hours

  • Emphasis is placed on each student’s right to sleep and study; hence, it is the responsibility of the resident to maintain reasonable conditions for these activities. Courtesy and quiet hours have been established on each Residence Hall floor. 

    Courtesy Hours

    Require students to be considerate of each other’s needs and to comply with neighbors’ requests for maintaining a lower or reasonable level of noise. This is applicable at all times during the day.

    Quiet Hours

    Require that noise be reduced so that nothing can be heard from within rooms when the doors are shut. The time frame for quiet hours is late in the evening to early morning, specifically from 12:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. This provides the opportunity for residents to sleep, study, or have time to reflect if that is what is desired. Co-op Hall and Vodra (5th) Academic Floor has modified quiet hours from 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m. Sunday thru Thursday, and 12:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Friday thru Saturday.

    A 24-hour quiet period goes into effect two weeks prior to final examinations. This provides residents with an atmosphere in which to prepare for their examinations if they desire to study in the Residence Halls. During quiet hours there will be no overnight guest(s).
