PSU Bans Hoverboards on Campus

Posted on: January 26th, 2016 by Martha

Effective Immediately – Due to safety concerns following numerous reports of hoverboard fires, PSU has prohibited the storage or use of self-balancing scooters in all university buildings. The United States Postal Service and major airlines have banned the transportation of hoverboards on planes, and a number of cities, businesses, colleges, and universities have banned the devices as well. In the interest of community safety, these devices are prohibited until the cause of these fires is fully understood and the risks have been mitigated.

Questions or concerns? Contact Katie Caron, environmental health & safety manager, at or (603) 535-2409.
