Open Residence Hours

During Open Residence Hours, students are permitted to visit residence rooms of those of the opposite sex. Students are permitted to visit others as long as they have been invited and the door must remain fully open.

  • Hours: Tuesday & Thursday, 6:30 PM-9:30PM and Saturday 11AM-9:30PM

Entering the residence halls of the opposite sex is strictly forbidden outside of Open Residence and Open Lounge hours. Both the student hosting and the student visiting outside of open residence hours will be held accountable. Residence Life staff reserve the right to alter Open Residence Hours.

Noise and Quiet Hours

In order to contribute to an atmosphere conducive to study, devotion and sleep, resident students are expected to abide by and help enforce designated Quiet Hours. Quiet Hours in the residence halls are from 11:00PM – 8:00AM daily, although, an individual’s right for quiet study and sleep time always supersedes others’ right to make excessive noise, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Musical instruments and amps are not to be used at all in the residence. Acoustic guitars are acceptable if the volume is confined. Since the Providence campus is a diverse community with family residences, noise levels should also be kept at a respectful level when enjoying the outdoors.
