Frequently Asked Questions

 

What are quiet hours and when are they in effect?

The most common and potentially aggravating problem with hall life is excessive noise. Campus-wide quiet hours start in the evening (around 11 PM) and end in the early morning (9 AM). Stereos, radios, TVs, and human voices interfere with the need for sleep, study, and quiet. The privilege of playing a stereo or socializing ceases when it disturbs someone else. Cooperating fully with requests for quiet is expected.
During finals week, residents are expected to observe 24 hour quiet hours in residential halls. You don't have to be completely silent, just respect the needs of others.
