Wilkes University Hoverboard Guidelines
To: All Wilkes University Faculty, Staff & Students
In light of the safety concerns raised by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on hoverboards (i.e. electronic skateboards) and the number of recent hoverboard-related fires being investigated by the CPSC, Wilkes University is taking immediate steps to protect our campus community and residents. Effective immediately and until further notice, the possession, use, and storage of hoverboards and electric self-balancing scooters is prohibited on ALL University property (including University shuttle’s and vehicles).
