WHAT NOT BRING - -COOKING & HEATING APPLIANCES - Due to health and safety concerns and energy demands, sunlamps, torchiere halogen lamps, crockpots, toaster ovens, hot plates, space heaters, and other appliances with exposed heating units are not permitted in the residence halls. Furthermore, fire regulations do not permit flammable liquids, such as chemicals, gasoline, or lighter fluid within any residential building.
-KNIVES FOR COOKING - Unless you are residing in an apartment with a kitchen, do not bring knives for cooking to campus. Knives for use in food preparation within the community kitchens can be checked out from the residence hall service desks.
-AMPLIFIED INSTRUMENTS or DRUM SETS - These items will be confiscated and you will be required to ship these items home if they are seen or heard within the residence halls.
-DRUGS or ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES - Any student found in possession of or using illegal drugs will be documented and adjudicated through the Santa Clara University disciplinary process.
-WEAPONS or EXPLOSIVE AGENTS - The possession of any weapon including BB guns, air guns, firearms, hunting equipment, knives, martial arts tools, stun guns, paint-pellet guns, or any items of a similar nature, is prohibited in the residence halls. The use or possession of fireworks, firecrackers, or other explosives or chemicals is also prohibited.
-The University is not responsible for the safety of personal possessions. In many cases, a student’s personal belongings are covered under a student's homeowners insurance. If this is not the case for you, the Housing Office suggests obtaining additional insurance.
