12.01 Restricting access to or use of buildings and property

.01

The Secretary of the Board of Trustees is empowered to establish regulations restricting or prohibiting access to and/or use of University buildings and property in order to provide for the convenient and efficient conduct of the University's affairs, and the management and protection of such buildings and property; such regulations must be posted in the affected areas.

Michigan State University has established policies, ordinances, and regulations to reduce the risk of fire hazards in campus buildings. Given the current risk of fire associated with hoverboards, electric mobility devices, and other similar equipment and the lack of recognized safety standards for hoverboards, electric mobility devices, and other similar equipment, the Secretary of the Board of Trustees hereby prohibits the use, charging, storage, and possession of hoverboards, electric mobility devices, and other similar equipment in all University buildings.

For the purpose of this ordinance, “electric mobility device” means any device in, upon, or by which, any person or property is or may be transported that has an electrical propulsion system (including, without limitation, electric bicycles, electric skateboards, and other electric mobility devices designed as such pursuant to section 33.02).
