Weapons and Combustible Materials
Residents may not, for any reason, bring into the residence halls or apartments any weapon for use, possession or storage. This includes, but is not limited to firearms (including rifles); projectile devices (such as bows & arrows); blades (such as swords, switchblades, or knives with a blade longer than 5"); or other such devices perceived as weapons. Pepper spray is allowed provided it is used solely in a defensive manner.
Weapons, fireworks and explosives are not permitted in the residential facilities. Residents may not possess any fireworks, sparklers, combustible/explosive material, hazardous chemicals, or flammable liquids.
Candles, gas/oil lanterns, or any device producing open flames (such as incense and Sterno) are not permitted. Students who wish to burn incense for religious reasons need to get approval from their Assistant Director or Residence Director.
National studies have shown that touchier-style halogen lamps present significant risk of starting fires. As a result, these lamps are not permitted in residential rooms.
