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.

 

 

Gender Inclusive Housing Communities

 

Stony Brook offers Gender Inclusive Housing in several suite and apartment style communities. Residents of Gender Inclusive Housing will have the opportunity to live with members of the same gender, the opposite gender or students from across the gender spectrum within the same suite or apartment.

 

Gender Inclusive Housing is available to Stony Brook students who are 18 years of age or older by the start of the semester in which they matriculate. Applicants will be able to request placement into one of the Gender Inclusive suites or apartments on a space available basis, and will sign a supplemental housing agreement which outlines the expectations of the community.  Requests for Gender Inclusive Housing will be reviewed with each applicant including a discussion of community expectations with placement facilitated on a space available basis.
