Graduate Housing Quiet Hours

You are here

Residents living in all University housing are asked to respect quiet hours from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and from midnight to 10:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Loud music and disruptive noise infringes upon the rights of others to study, to sleep or to carry on necessary duties and functions at the University.  Outside of the designated quiet hours, an occupant is expected to respond to reasonable requests from other residents to reduce noise if it is infringing upon others.  Residents who are having trouble with a noisy neighbor should talk with them before calling the Lehigh Police. If the situation does not get better, the Lehigh police can be called and will respond to the situation.

All residents living in on-campus residence halls (including Saucon Village, Packer House and 230 W. Packer) are asked to respect the 24 hour quiet hour period on campus during finals week in the Spring and Fall. These dates vary each year but start after the last day of class and run through the last final. Residents are asked to be respectful of their neighbors by limiting the amount of unnecessary noise in their living space (loud music, group events, moving in/out of apartments etc). For Saucon Village residents, the community room is available to be reserved for events during that time.

Facilities will stop any larger projects (sprinklers, railings, roofs etc) during finals in order to respect the time that residents need to study. Facilities will continue to work on apartments and respond to requests as normal.
