WHAT NOT BRING - Don't even think about:
-Extension cords (UL surge protectors ONLY).
-Window treatments (Fire safety regulations do not permit covering or replacing furnished drapes or blinds).
-Halogen lamps, lava lamps, etc.
-Candles*, incense, candle warmers, hot oil, or any air freshener that uses a heat source (i.e. Glade plug-in), etc.
-Appliances with an open or exposed heating element (hot plates, George Foreman grills, BBQ grills, toaster ovens, etc.)
-Full sized appliances (fridges, freezers, dishwashers, etc.)
-A/C or window unit. (Self-standing fans only).
-Pets (except fish—that’s ONLY fish. 10 gallon tank limit).
-Wireless Routers are NOT allowed!
(*Decorative candles that have never been burned, are wrapped, and/or have wicks removed are okay— please note that even possession of a burnt candle is in violation of our fire safety regulations).
We don't recommend:
-Loft kits (limited lofts are available from the hall—any loft or bed raisers that are not checked out from the hall MUST have prior approval from the Resident Director. Simpson Beds already loft.)
-Family valuables and excessive cash (while we take every measure to ensure the halls are safe, don’t risk losing irreplaceable items.)
-Nails, duct tape, foam adhesive, or scotch tape as they can and will damage walls and result in a damage assessment (see Decorating 101).
