Tufts, like many other colleges and universities, has become increasingly concerned by reports from organizations such as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission about fires associated with hoverboards. Therefore, effective Tuesday, January 12, 2016, the university is restricting the use, storage and charging of hoverboards and similar devices anywhere on our campuses. These devices may not be used or stored on Tufts property, inside university buildings or at other locations designated as campus housing. We are continuing to monitor the safety concerns associated with these products and guidance from consumer product safety organizations.
