As e-scooters have become increasingly popular, this message is to remind students, faculty and staff that e-scooters and e-bikes stored improperly are potential fire hazards.
For personal safety and the safety of others, e-scooters, e-bikes and similar devices may not be used, stored or charged indoors in residence halls, offices or campus buildings.
Here’s what you need to know:
E-scooters and similar devices may be locked and stored at a bike rack or taken home over academic breaks.
E-scooters and similar devices must be registered with Transportation and Parking Services.
E-scooters, e-bikes or other similar devices found indoors on University-owned property may be confiscated.
The National Fire Protection Agency website provides additional information and a tip sheet on safety awareness for e-bikes and e-scooters. Early in the spring semester, the University will be using yard signs, table tents, posters and hangtags to raise awareness about e-scooter and e-bike safety.
Small vehicle storage guidelines, safety tips and a downloadable PDF on safety guidelines can be found on the Parking and Transportation website. If you have questions about Transportation and Parking Services policies call 336.758.7275.
