Amenities and Features

Safety

IMPORTANT: POLICY ON Hoverboards, Self-Balancing Scooters, Gyroscopes, in the Residence Halls

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.

Insurance Information

Part of college life includes taking suitable precautions with regard to personal belongings and being alert to suspicious activities within the residence halls. Regardless of these precautions, loss of personal property is sometimes inevitable. Our Student Handbook (PDF - 19.5 MB) clearly states that Winthrop University is not responsible for personal property owned by students, faculty or staff.
