24 Hour Quiet

NEW for Fall 2023 (website and application)

icon for turning down music

The Quiet community is a space that seeks to maintain an environment conducive to sleep and study 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with minimal disruption or noise. This hall is by no means an anti-social environment; it is simply one in which its residents are more considerate to and respectful of the desires of their hallmates to stick to their own sleep, work, and study schedules. Student rooms and common spaces (i.e., laundry, lounges, hallways) must abide by the quiet housing rules.

Quiet housing has a few simple rules:

  • Excessive noise is not permitted.
    1. Those who wish to listen to music or play video games must do so with headphones
    2. Those who wish to watch television must do so with their doors closed and at a low volume. The noise should not that be detectable outside the door.
    3. Common spaces (i.e., lounges, laundry rooms, hallways) must keep doors closed at all times to reduce noise.
  • Residents are responsible for the conduct of their guests.
    1. Guests are expected to maintain the same standards of quiet as residents.

How to Apply?

Gender Inclusive & Open Housing

While the majority of housing is assigned based on roommates having the same gender, we are proud to also offer Gender Inclusive Housing and Open Housing. These housing options provide the opportunity to select an assignment that does not require all roommates to be of the same sex or gender.
Gender Inclusive Housing brings together individuals as part of a welcoming and inclusive community where roommates can select to live with each other regardless of sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Open Housing is designed to accommodate requests to live with individuals with a different gender. This housing option is to accommodate requests for male and female students to reside in the same room or apartment.
