No Hoverboards Allowed - Effective Immediately

As part of Tarleton State University’s commitment to campus safety, the university has decided to institute a temporary ban on hoverboards, also known as, a self-balancing scooter or recreational mobility device. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is currently performing an investigation to evaluate the safety of these devices.

Therefore, immediately, individuals are prohibited in using, charging or storing a hoverboard within any university building or facility.

The university will reevaluate this ban once applicable safety standards of these devices have been accepted or issued by the CPSC or other nationally recognized testing laboratory such as Underwriter Laboratories (UL).
