Resident's Rights Related to Noise -- Noise that unreasonably disrupts roommate(s), resident(s), and neighboring community members at any time or that violates quiet-hour policies, courtesy-hour policies, or the community's standards is prohibited. This includes amplified sound (e.g., facing stereo speakers out windows, use of megaphones, electronic instruments and/or equipment, microphones, etc.). Residents are expected to respond to requests to reduce noise at all times. All parties present in a room or suite documented for noise will be presumed to be contributing to the community disruption and are subject to follow-up by their residence director.

Quiet Hours -- Regular designated quiet hours are Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. and midnight to 8:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Residents are responsible for knowing and following the quiet hours policies for their specific residence hall and during final exams. When quiet hours are in effect, noise should not be heard from outside a room or suite.

Courtesy Hours -- During courtesy hours, which are any time quiet is requested, noise should not be heard more than five feet from outside a room or building.
