The Do's and Don'ts of the Student Center
(culled from the Student Organizations Handbook)

  • Only one small, Energy Star refrigerator is permitted in each office.
  • Microwaves and toaster ovens are not permitted in any Student Center offices for safety and power capacity reasons.
  • Any changes in office space layout or furniture must be approved by the Building Oversight Committee to ensure compliance with ADA, fire safety and other regulations.
  • Additional furniture or appliances for offices in the Student Center these items will be removed.
  • No posters, flyers, signs, or anything that blocks visual access into the offices are allowed.
  • No bicycles are allowed in the building
  • Do not ever leave open containers of food on the counters. If you have leftover food it must either be discarded immediately, or stored immediately in the refrigerator
  • Hallways must be kept clear at all times. Keep trash and recycling containers inside your office and transfer your office containers frequently into the containers in the kitchen and lounge area to dispose of office trash, recycling and composting from your office.
  • Do not use push pins or tacks on the laminate wall or glass surfaces. If you must attach something to the walls use only Blue tape (painter’s tape) which is easily removable.
