Fire is one of the most likely and potentially preventable emergencies that can occur on the campus. To minimize the risk of campus fires, the University maintains strict safety guidelines that adhere to the North Carolina fire codes as well as nationally recognized guidelines and best practices for safe campus living.
For a more comprehensive list of prohibited items, please refer to the Student Life Guide to Living On Campus. Questions regarding whether specific items may be allowed on campus (not specifically prohibited in the Student Life Guide) should be directed to Gus Porter, Environmental Health, Safety & Preparedness Manager.
The Office of Student Life and the Security Department may confiscate any items that pose a threat to the safety of the campus community, or are specifically prohibited by University regulations. Property confiscated by the Office of Student Life or Security Department may not be returned.
