Policy Statement

Students are expected to exercise courtesy when playing music or participating in other activity that may disturb other residents and/or interfere with the attempts of others to study. Courtesy hours serve as a reminder to all residents of the primary rights to sleep and study in the residential communities. 

  • All residential communities will adhere to 24-hour courtesy hours.
  • Residents, guests, and others when outside should maintain reasonable noise levels when in close proximity to College residences.
  • Noise complaints may lead to disciplinary action.
  • Repeated noise complaints against an individual demonstrate an inability to respect the rights of others and will likely result in the offending student being removed from housing.
