Outdoor Noise

The following was adopted in the fall semester 1999 and governs events which occur on campus and which feature amplified sound:

It is the responsibility of event organizers to schedule events at times and in locations that will not disrupt residents of the local neighborhoods or members of the university community who are not event participants. As you plan an event, we ask you to be sensitive to the peace and privacy concerns of your colleagues, students and local residents.

To this end, events which take place outdoors and which feature amplified sound will end at 11:00 p.m. on evenings prior to a work day and such events will end at 1:00 a.m. on evenings not prior to a workday. Adequate controls will be in place to monitor excessive noise and to respond to complaints.
