The Residential Life staff at SVSU is committed to helping create an environment that affords each student the opportunity to study or sleep when they prefer. For this reason quiet/courtesy hours have been established. Quiet Hours means that residents are to refrain from creating any noise that could be disturbing to others. Courtesy Hours will be in effect at all times in all residential complexes and when Quiet Hours are not in force. This means that residents must comply with reasonable requests to keep noise levels to a minimum. Stereos, radios, TV's, computers and all conversations must be kept to levels that will not interfere with other residents. No sound amplification or musical instruments can be played within or in the vicinity of residential facilities. If residents prefer loud music, headphones are required.
It is the obligation of all residents to handle violations of Quiet or Courtesy Hours by first approaching the situation themselves. The policy depends primarily on mutual respect and concern for a satisfactory study/living environment. In the event that residents are not successful in dealing with a violation of quiet hours, a referral may be made to a Residential Life staff member. Residents who violate quiet hours or courtesy hours may be subject to disciplinary action. Quiet hours will be in effect on a 24-hour basis during the final exam week of each academic semester (beginning on the weekend prior to the first scheduled exam day).
Courtesy Hours are in effect at all times except during designated Quiet Hours following. During these respective time frames, all sound must be contained within a resident's room and/or apartment and must not be disruptive to other residents.
