E. Noise and Quiet Hours

5.1 Noise in M Housing Spaces and Community Areas
Noise and activities that disrupt study sleep and “quiet hours” (as described below) are prohibited in M Housing. During quiet hours, spaces should be free from excessive noise.

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. Housing 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.
