Noise is never “the more the better” apart from being in the LKF. However, we seldom notice how much the noise we produce is disturbing others unintentionally. To be practical, how much noise is too much? It varies in different situations like during daytime and quiet hours, summer time and exam periods. Residents are expected to make no disturbing noises during the quiet hours (11PM-7AM), as someone may have early classes or work in the following day. Disturbing noises refer its effect to others. As a university student, we should be able to tell how much volume is bothering to others.
Imagine sleeping in a casino. It won’t be enjoyable, right? Let’s flip the time back when parents wouldn’t allow us to make bombing noises in the midnight at home because it might bother them or the neighbours. Though the new environment we have here is filled with energetic lives, we still have neighbours and they don’t like to be disturbed all the time.
