Noise comes in all forms:loud music, horns, sirens, cars and even your voice. Next to discarded trash, noise is the one thing that can cause the most difficulty with neighbors.
Seattle has several noise ordinances which restrict noise between 10:00pm-7:00am on weekdays and 11:00pm-7:00am on Friday and Saturday nights. If the noise associated with your residence can be heard from 75 feet away, you could be looking at a citation.
Citations range from $250-$500. If your residence receives more than one citation, your landlord can be contacted and upon the third citation, the landlord can evict you or face abatement actions by the city. This means the landlord could lose the property or be prevented from renting. Don't get kicked out of your house because of noise!
In addition, the Student Conduct Code gives the University of Washington to also take disciplinary action when it is made aware of citations received by students living in the North of 45th neighborhood. WAC 478-120-025
