Student Handbook: Hoverboards

Hoverboards are not permitted in any Fordham University building, including residence halls. Likewise, hoverboards are prohibited on any campus roadway or path. This prohibition is based upon the potential fire hazard the devices pose, as well as the risk of falls and injuries. Hoverboards are prohibited on all major airlines, and the risks associated with them have been documented by the New York City Fire and Police Departments. Since hoverboards are technically motor vehicles, but cannot be registered with Department of Motor Vehicles, they are prohibited on New York City streets by state law.
