Environmental Safety

Students must adhere to Federal, State, and university rules, regulations and policies regarding environmental safety. Students are responsible for the proper disposal of personal, room, suite, and/or apartment waste into appropriate waste containers. Intentionally, negligently, or recklessly exposing someone to hazardous waste as determined by the law or university policy is strictly prohibited. Violations of the environmental safety policy include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Inappropriate use, storage, and/or disposal of chemicals, paints, sharps (e.g., needles, syringes, broken glass, fluorescent bulbs)
  2. Inappropriate disposal of or exposure to blood-borne pathogens, bodily fluids, biological waste (e.g., public urination, defecation, or regurgitation)
  3. Failure to appropriately dispose of trash or waste
