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. By the end of the second week of classes, each residence hall will determine the quiet hours for the building and agree upon expectations of each individual resident. Until that time, the following quiet hours are in effect: 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.
