SPECIAL LIVING OPTIONS
 

24 Hour Quiet Communities

Stony Brook offers the option of 24 hour quiet living in every Quad on campus. Residents of 24-Hour Quiet Communities accept a living standard that supports strictly enforced quiet hours 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During these hours, residents should take measures to ensure they do not disturb other residents within the residence hall or apartment. If a fellow resident should request that the level of noise be reduced, compliance is expected.

Residents who fail to comply with the expectations of a 24 hour quiet community will after one warning be administratively reassigned to a space in another residential community and will receive a judicial referral. Applicants will be able to request placement into one of the 24 hour quiet communities on a space available basis, and will sign a supplemental housing agreement which outlines the expectations of the community.
