Facilities Guidelines

1. All students are expected to respect all property of Providence. The Providence community at large would greatly appreciate the help of all members in the upkeep and security of all grounds, buildings, and property.

2. Students are responsible for insuring all personal items, whether stored on the premises or in individual rooms. In some cases, the family Homeowner’s Insurance Policy may cover your belongings. However, each person should make sure that it is added as a rider to the policy or they should purchase tenant insurance.

3. Due to fire regulations, open flame of any kind (i.e. candles) is strictly prohibited. As a smoke-free campus, Providence also prohibits the use of cigarettes anywhere on campus.

4. Airsoft equipment is not to be used in any building on campus including residences and apartments.

5. Skateboards are not to be used and rollerblades are not to be worn inside any building on campus.

6. Pets are not allowed in any of the campus buildings. The only exceptions to this rule are registered support animals (see the Support Animal policy) and fish.

7. Soliciting of goods and services is not permitted on campus without permission from the Student Development Department.

8. Except for school business, students should not be in the maintenance and storage areas, kitchen, or faculty/staff mailroom, and lounge.

9. The use of any school equipment must be cleared by the appropriate department head.

10. All notices, posters, pictures, and signs for the bulletin boards or any other prominent place on campus are to be approved by the Student Services Coordinator. Designated boards are provided for specific posting needs (buy, sell, housing, events, etc.) Please post appropriately. For more information, contact the Student Services Coordinator. Furthermore, items should not be posted on the glass doors in any entrance of the school. Items posted on the glass doors will be removed.

11. Acts of vandalism, break and enter, and theft are serious, and consequences will be implemented, as appropriate, by Providence University College and Seminary and/or by the local authorities.
