WHAT NOT BRING - Across the country, unattended electrical appliances have led to many fires in residence halls. To prevent such occurrences from happening at GSU, all appliances or heat generating devices (such as an iron) must be properly monitored at all times. Failure to do so will be considered negligent and proper disciplinary actions will be taken.
For safety reasons, the following appliances are NOT PERMITTED in Prairie Place. Please consult the
University Housing Handbook for more detailed safety information: https://bit.ly/3dqgj2S
Devices with open heating elements
Halogen light bulbs (used in desk lamps or free standing lamps)
Window/portable air conditioners
All indoor grills (e.g. Black and Decker®, George Foreman® etc.)
Candles, incense, lanterns or any similar open flame devices*
*Candles/incense used for religious purposes (i.e. Hanukkah, Solstice celebrations) must be kept in the
RHD office and tagged appropriately. The RHD reserves the right to determine when and where items
may be used.
