Prohibited Items list

Prohibited Items List
Know what's prohibited and send it home
January 01, 2012

The prohibited items list will help you as you prepare to live in the residence halls. If it's prohibited, leave it at home. 

It is the responsibility of all members of the university community to support loss prevention and maintain a healthy living environment. 

The Office of Health and Safety performs residence hall health and safety inspections four times a year: twice in the fall, once in the spring, and once in the summer. Inspections will only be announced the first round of the fall semester. All other inspections are unannounced. 

The inspection will include, but not be limited to, a visual inspection of electrical cords, sprinkler heads, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and other life safety systems. 

Each room will also be examined for the presence of prohibited items, indicators of prohibited activities that pose a threat to life safety (ex. smoking in the room, tampering with smoke detectors, possession of pets etc.), food and waste storage and cleanliness. Prohibited items will be confiscated

Use the prohibited items list to make sure that you're doing your part to keep the residence hall safe.
