Noise Policy

The realities of community living dictate that individuals respect community needs for the moderation of noise. Residents are expected to exercise good judgment and consideration in maintaining a living environment conducive to the achievement of the educational mission of the university. This includes accepting responsibility for one’s behavior at all times and respecting the rights of other individuals.

Residents are not permitted to make noise that disturbs others or exhibit disorderly conduct on university grounds.

Disruptive Noise: making noise or causing noise to be made with objects and instruments, which disturbs classes, meetings, office procedures and other authorized university activities.

Sound Amplification: using sound amplification equipment such as a bullhorn on the campus or in buildings without written permission of the Dean of Students or the Dean’s designee, except when such use is authorized for official university activities.
