Rooftop Danger

May 10, 2024

Roofs are not designed for walking or sitting, and hidden hazards such as loose tiles or unstable surfaces can lead to serious injuries and expensive property damage. Plus, if you’re caught trespassing on a roof, you might face disciplinary or legal consequences. Instead, explore other areas on campus designated for foot traffic, like the many nature trails, quads, Libe Slope or other outdoor spaces. Prioritize everyone’s safety, including yours, by keeping your feet on the ground.
