Quiet Floor (4th floor)

Residents of the Quiet Floor will live in an environment that has the maximum number of study hours! A few guidelines if you choose to live on the 4th Floor of the Studios:

•Quiet Hours will be in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
•All noise (television, music, talking) must be maintained at a low level which is undisruptive to other Quiet Floor community members.
•Guests are allowed in Quiet Floor rooms. However, guests must abide by Quiet Floor guidelines. If they do not, the host will be held responsible for their behavior and guests may be asked to leave the floor or the building.
•Residents agree to confront each other for noise violations.
•Consideration for others is essential on the Quiet Floor and forms a basis for a cohesive, supportive community.

If you would like to stay on the Quiet Floor, please indicate that on your Housing Application.
