Quiet Area Agreement

Quiet Area Agreement

Do you prefer to live in a "Quiet Area"? 

Please review and sign the following document if you prefer to live in a quiet area. Please return by email to orilliaresidence@lakeheadu.ca


WELLNESS HOUSE AGREEMENT: QUIET

The "Quiet Areas" were established for students committed to maintaining a quieter residence community more conducive to study. It is the student's right, as a resident of these areas, to live in a quiet environment. If this right is being violated, the student is encouraged to approach the person(s) responsible. Resident Assistants will be responsible for mediating disputes between students as they arise. Final decisions regarding dispute settlement rests with the Residence Area Coordinator. The following represents the basic conditions which support the above objective. Students requesting residence in the quiet areas must first accept in writing the following conditions:

  1. Students are encouraged to maintain a level of room noise that cannot be heard outside the room when the door is closed. (Exception Item 3). Stereo headphones are strongly recommended.
  2. Regular living noise is acceptable in the lounges (i.e. conversation, house meetings, use of kitchen facilities, etc.) Students should not use the lounges for other activities such as music, large gatherings, boisterous behaviour, etc. (Exception Item 4)
  3. The foregoing conditions are waived from 5:00pm-11:00pm on Friday and Saturday evenings. During this time, a reasonable noise level will be allowed. This does not mean "anything goes". This does not apply during the final exam period.
  4. House/Floor gatherings will be allowed on an occasional basis provided 75% of the community agrees to the event and that the approval is obtained from Residence Life Coordinator in advance.
  5. The Department of Residence strives to promote community living and social interaction among students. Therefore, individuals expecting absolute silence at all times may not be well suited for residence life, even in a quiet area, and may want to consider other living arrangements.
