The university expects residents to abide by important rules and policies while residing in a residence hall or apartment complex. These regulations were created to ensure the safety and comfort of all our residents. Failure to act according to university policy may result in judicial sanctions.

Personal transportation devices (bicycles, skateboards and scooters)

Bicycles, skateboards, and scooters may not be used inside of any university owned and operated residence hall or apartment.

Bicycles, skateboards and scooters (non-motorized) may be stored inside a student’s bedroom, with the consent of the roommate; residents must transport these items to and from their rooms, without riding them. Bicycle storage racks are also located outside most buildings. By university policy (UPPS 05.02.07), bicycles are not to be chained to railings or other permanent exterior building fixtures. Students with bikes should use courtesy when moving a bike through a hall and avoid tracking dirt and mud into the building, or scratching walls. Students may not ride bikes, skateboards, or scooters, and may not use roller blades in the halls or breezeways. All bicycles should be registered with the university police. All unregistered bicycles left in the halls or complexes after spring semester closing will be removed by Transportation Services. Motorized/electric wheelchairs may be used, stored and charged in on-campus housing.

Any and all self-balancing, battery-operated or gas-powered motorized transportation devices (this includes hands-free and handle-bar equipment and equipment commonly known as “Hoverboards”) may not be possessed, used or stored within university owned and operated housing. Students found to be in possession of any of these items will be asked to remove them immediately from the residence hall or apartment unit; failure to do so will require a temporary confiscation of that item.  The student may request re-possession when s/he is ready to permanently move the item to an off-site location.
