Hoverboard Policy

Purchase College, SUNY prohibits the use of self-balancing scooters, more popularly known as hoverboards, because of recent concerns by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the potential impact these devices may have on campus safety and the threat they pose with regards to fire.

Hoverboards include self-balancing scooters, battery operated scooters, and hands-free segways and will not be permitted on campus, in any buildings or residence halls.
