Policy Regarding Rules on Appliances, Smoking, and Open Flames

The electrical systems in campus housing are not designed to carry heavy loads of electrical equipment, so students should use only 1 plug per receptacle.

  • Due to fire danger, hot plates or any open coil appliances are not allowed.  
  • Only 1 refrigerator and 1 microwave are allowed in each room. Refrigerators may not exceed 4 cubic feet.
  • Roommates should coordinate to ensure that only 1 of each of these appliances is moved into the room.
  • The University House suites will have a refrigerator and microwave already furnished. Students living in those suites are responsible for the cleanliness and defrosting of appliances.
  • Smoking is not permitted on campus.
  • Candles, incense, halogen lights, and flammable lamps are prohibited due to danger of high heat, dripping wax or open flame.
