Community Standards:

ALCOHOL & DRUGS

In Massachusetts, an individual must be twenty-one years of age to possess and consume alcohol. The University expects that all of its program participants abide by this law and abide by University regulations concerning alcohol and drug use.

Possession and consumption of alcohol is limited to individuals of legal age in a private apartment or bedroom within a residence hall. All occupants of a private bedroom or apartment where alcohol is being consumed must be of legal age. Consumption of alcohol is prohibited in all residence hall common areas.

Use of any tobacco or smoking-related products is prohibited at Northeastern University, consistent with applicable law and University policy.

 Additionally, the possession or use of cannabis, cannabinoids, marijuana or other controlled substances on university property is prohibited.

Participants who encounter a noise problem may contact an External Events and Conference Housing staff member who will assist in addressing the situation.

TRASH

Trash should be removed from individual rooms frequently. Each residence hall has trash disposal locations. Please consult the signage in the lobby or hallways to find the disposal location nearest to you.

DANGEROUS WEAPONS

Possession or use of items that could be used to harm or threaten another individual is prohibited. Those items include, but are not limited to pepper spray or mace, switchblades, knives, fake guns, tazers, BB guns, fireworks, ammunition, nunchaka (karate sticks), explosive devices, or firearms.

Safety and Security:

Safety and security is a top priority for Intern Housing participants. All residence hall lobbies are equipped with CCTV surveillance cameras that are monitored by both the Public Safety Operations Center and the Residential Safety Office supervisors.

GUIDELINES FOR SAFETY

Maintaining a secure conference building depends on cooperation from the entire community. Follow these guidelines and use common sense for a safe and rewarding stay at Northeastern:

Close and lock your door(s) and window(s) when you leave your room, even if you plan to be gone for a short time.

Report all suspicious activity, thefts and other crimes to University police immediately.

Never sign strangers or anyone for whom you are not willing to be responsible into your building.

Immediately report any disturbances on campus or in the city streets to University police.

IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE

If you witness a fire, sound an alarm at the nearest pull station. Pull stations are located on each floor of every residence hall near the exits. The door of your room or apartment has a detailed evacuation route for fires and other building emergencies. Please take a moment to reference this document.

At the sound of an alarm, move quickly and quietly to your closest exit, including the alarmed emergency exits. Close doors behind you as you leave. In an orderly fashion, follow the direction of conference staff, NUPD, or Fire Department officials and wait for further instructions. If possible, wear a coat and shoes and carry a towel to use in case of smoke. Keep these items easily accessible for emergency use along with your keys and conference card since it may be several hours before you are permitted to re-enter the building.

A number of residence halls at Northeastern utilize fire escapes as an alternative means of egress. Access to fire escapes is through dedicated windows. Fire escape windows must be kept clear. No furniture, air conditioners or other personal effects are to be placed so as to restrict access to the fire escape window.

FIRE SAFETY REMINDERS:

Do not allow trash to accumulate.

Do not dispose of cigarettes in wastebaskets. Smoking is prohibited on campus.

The use of candles or other open flames is prohibited in residence halls.
