E-scooters, E-skateboards and Hoverboards

Loughborough University staff and students are advised that the use of E-scooters, E-skateboards and Hoverboards are not permitted on any part of the University campus.

University Security will request that any staff or students found using such items on campus should dismount immediately.  Failure to comply, or continued requests to refrain from using such items may be considered a matter of staff or student misconduct.

This is due to the health and safety concerns they present for the rider and other pedestrians and road-users on the site.

As an organisation, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and making travel as clean and sustainable as is possible. We continually assess the use of alternative forms of transport across the campus and hope to pilot a scheme in the future where their use may be considered.

Staff and students are also advised that the use of E-scooters and other similar machines on public roads and pavements is illegal, and anyone riding such risks prosecution from the police, in addition to the item being seized and destroyed.
