Any resident who is disturbing other residents with noise (voice, stereo, television, etc.) is not being considerate of his/her neighbors. It is preferred that the resident being disturbed make the first attempt to stop the noise. However, it is within the RAs jurisdiction to confront any situation he/she regards as a noise problem regardless of the time of day. Basically, activity within any room should scarcely be noticeable outside of that room. Students who repeatedly are inconsiderate of others and create unreasonable disturbances will face disciplinary action. Use of the garbage chutes is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. due to the noise disturbance.
