Hoverboards Not Permitted in Residence Halls

Due to increasing reports of safety concerns and fire hazards surrounding hoverboards, as well as the welfare of our residential students, hoverboards are not allowed to be used, stored, or present in the residence halls, Northern View Apartments or residential dining facilities. As the number of fires and other safety concerns continue to grow, many other colleges and universities have also banned the use or storage of hoverboards.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a statement on the safety of hoverboards that provides further context for our decision to prohibit hoverboards in all of our campus residential facilities. Please contact our office at housingdining@niu.edu if you have questions or concerns.
