Due to the continued national safety concerns with “hoverboard” self-balancing electric scooters; particularly their tendency to spontaneously catch on fire, these devices are prohibited in the residence halls. If you own one, please make sure that the device is not brought to campus. Several safety and consumer agencies are investigating numerous fires and injuries related to these devices. The extreme risk of fire caused by the lithium-ion rechargeable batteries in these devices makes them an unacceptable safety hazard in our communities.
