To ensure an atmosphere which is conducive to studying and comfortable community living, students may not cause disruptive noise. Courtesy hours are in place at all times; students are encouraged to speak respectfully to other students who may be disrupting their environment. Any noise, inside or outside of the hall, which disturbs other residents (regardless of day or time) is a violation of 24-hour courtesy hours. The College advocates for respectful communication between adult parties to resolve the disruption.
Quiet hours are from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, and from 12 midnight to 10 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Mandatory 24-hour quiet hours occur during the final exam periods. Residents are expected to respect quiet hours, and their fellow community members, during the times of day when others are likely sleeping or studying. Students will receive an educational warning the first time quiet hours are violated. Subsequent disturbances may lead to residential life fines.
