Housing & Residential Living
The most troublesome issue within a college residential community is unwanted distraction and noise while other students are studying, sleeping, or simply expecting quiet time. A student's right to study or sleep in an environment free from undue interference and disruption is a priority at Carleton. As a result, quiet hours have been established for all student residential areas, effective 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday through Thursday evenings and from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Friday and Saturday evenings. Individual living units may extend these hours; however, they may not reduce them since residents find these hours to be effective for the purposes of study and sleep. Twenty-four hour quiet hours are in effect beginning at 11 p.m. on the last day of classes each term through the end of exams.
