Due to recent safety concerns raised by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, all hoverboard-type devices are prohibited from use or storage on UMKC campus property and UMKC-owned or -operated facilities, effective January 14, 2016.  If you own one of these devices, please do not bring it to campus.

The policy has been included in the UMKC Student Handbook.  Please note that this policy could be modified with the input of our campus community as new information is released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and with increased safety standards of these types of motorized devices.

It is important we work together to help ensure our campus is as safe as possible.  As always, please continue to be mindful of the safety of others, as well as yourselves.
