Campus-wide quiet hours begin at 11:00 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and at 2:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday and are in effect until 7:30 a.m. each day. Noise that infringes on a person’s working environment at any time cannot be tolerated.
Members of the Hampshire community have the right to a quiet environment. Unlike areas surrounding other buildings, noise made outside of residence halls can interfere with the ability to sleep, study, or socialize. The same expectations regarding courtesy that apply inside residence halls also apply to the area surrounding them. The use of amplified instruments, DJ equipment, and drums in the residences, indoor or outdoors, and the placing of stereo speakers in windows facing outward are prohibited. The sanctions for violation of noise regulations will depend on the severity and frequency of the noise and an offender’s behavior when alerted by campus police or a staff member.
