NOISE - COURTESY HOURS
HRL is committed to the creation of residential communities that support an academic environment. Therefore, noise level in any unit may not negatively impact other community members. HRL staff may request residents to cease an activity in order to limit noise that could adversely affect the community. Courtesy is expected 24 hours a day. Residents have the right to ask others to refrain from making noise when that noise interferes with study, sleep, or general use of the housing unit. If a resident requests another resident to lower the volume or reduce the amount of noise, the expectation is a prompt and positive response to that request.
NOISE - QUIET HOURS
Beyond courtesy hours, residents are required to restrict the noise level to allow for studying and sleeping during the following hours:
10:00 p.m.-10:00 a.m. Sunday-Thursday Nights
12:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. Friday-Saturday Nights
During quiet hours, spaces should be free from excessive noise. Residents participating in noise producing activities, such as conversation, listening to music or watching television, are expected to keep their doors closed. Sounds from these and any activities should not be audible outside the space. Any noise made in lounges or other common areas should not be audible inside resident spaces that have their doors closed. Quiet hours also apply to noise made outside the building or in nearby parking lots. 24-hour quiet hours are in effect during final exam periods.
