Weapons are not allowed in residence halls. The RISD Code of Conduct lists the following as an example of unacceptable behavior: “Using, displaying, or possessing objects or substances whose primary purpose is to cause or threaten harm, such as firearms, pellet guns, ammunition, slingshots, switchblade knives, explosives, or any realistic toy or model such items, even if otherwise permitted by law; or using any other objects or substances to cause or threaten harm.”
