Please refer to our website regarding Quiet hours under Noise Policy in our Residence-Community-Standards

During exam periods, all residences will adhere to a 24 hours quiet hour policy.  A break for 1 hour per day will be determined by the Residence Life Staff in which quiet hours may be relaxed, however, courtesy hours will still be in effect.  

Violations of the 24 hour quiet hours during the exam period may result in a $50 fine.  For the first occurrence, the fine will be $50 and will increase by $50 for each time this happens.  If you have been approved to stay in residence over the holiday break and your last exam finishes before the end of the exam period, Residence Services reserves the right to remove you from residence for the remainder of the exam period if you are found to be violating the exam noise policy.

No overnight guests are allowed during exams or over the holiday recess (December 9, 2023 to January 3, 2024)
