WHAT NOT BRING - In order to maintain a safe living environment for over 3000 residents, certain items are prohibited from the Residential Community. If a resident or guest is found in possession of these items, residents may face disciplinary action ranging from written warning to their Housing License Agreement being terminated. This should give you a general idea of what is not appropriate to bring into the Residential Community.
