Important Safety Notice About Prohibited Types of Dorm Room Lighting
Because halogen bulbs are very hot to the touch and have been linked to fires, many colleges and universities have banned their use in dorm rooms, campus housing. In addition, many schools prohibit the hanging of neon signs, wall or ceiling mounted lighting (i.e.sconces and chandeliers), rope lights, or string lights (i.e. holiday and Christmas lights) in residence hall rooms. Lastly, recent reports indicate an unhealthy amount of lead content in certain types of string lighting, please avoid the risk.
