Policies + Disclosures

« back to list


Workroom use policies have been developed by the Office of Environmental Health & Safety and are posted in each work area. Projects that are messy or work involving solvents, corrosive substances or flammable materials should be done in these areas or in academic studio areas. Custodial staff clean the work areas each Tuesday morning. Anything remaining and not clearly labeled as in-progress and with the student’s name and room number is removed. Deliberate graffiti or other painting is not permitted in these or any other areas. Spray painting or other work resulting in noxious fumes should be conducted only in workrooms equipped with a spray booth. Spray painting directly on the ground or pavement outside of buildings is not permitted.
