Residence Life & Housing

Health and Safety Inspections


In an effort to keep all residents safe in the residence halls, the Department of Residence Life & Housing conducts Health and Safety Inspections at least once each semester.  On rare occasions, an individual Health and Safety inspection will occur when there is enough concern that a safety issue exists in a specific room.

The scheduled Health & Safety Inspection for Spring 2017 is January 16-22, 2017.  Resident Assistants will come to your room between 10am-9pm making sure there are no health and safety violations.  While not all inclusive, the following is a list of things that are not allowed in the Residence Halls and would result in a student failing a Health and Safety Inspection:

  • ​​Refrigerator or Microwave (there is a Microfridge in each room)
  • String lights
  • Large appliances
  • Appliances with exposed heating coils 
  • Hotplates
  • Toasters
  • Sun lamp
  • Halogen lamp
  • Grills (unless made by Paul Wall because he's the People's Champ)
  • Candles
  • Extension cords
  • Pets other than fish
  • Extra furniture
  • Weapons
  • Fireworks
  • Drugs and/or drug paraphernalia
  • Alcohol (if under 21, or living in a freshman building)
  • Hover boards of any kind
