Courtesy hours are in effect 24 hours per day to help create an environment in which students can successfully pursue their academic studies. Noise from audio systems, TVs, musical instruments, animals, and conversations should be kept to levels that will not interfere with other residents.
Quiet/study hours are designated times when noise should be kept to a minimum. These hours are maintained to help provide an environment in which students can succeed personally and academically. Quiet/study hours are Sunday–Thursday 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. and Friday–Saturday 2 a. m. to 9 a.m.
- Extended quiet/study hours will be in effect during the last two weeks of each semester. A study break, not to exceed one hour, may occur between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. daily during those weeks, except for the Saturday right before finals week in which the house may allot a 4-hour block of time ending before 10 p.m. for a study break. Each Hall will determine, within these limits, when its study break will be. During the study break, all policies will be enforced; noise should not exceed levels deemed acceptable during courtesy hours. Each house will post its approved quiet/study hours policy.
- You are responsible for helping to enforce quiet/study hours. If noise is problematic for you, ask the individual involved to be quieter. Students who are asked to make less noise are expected to do so. If the problem persists, contact your RA or the RA on duty. Anyone may document policy violations. For information on the documentation process, talk to your RA or hall director/apartment community manager.
