Trampolines and Hammocks Policy

Trampolines and Hammocks Policy

The use of trampolines is strictly prohibited on college property, including Tappan Square and village housing. Violations of this policy will result in judicial action.

Hammocks are permitted for use on college property only after receiving written approval from the Office of Facilities Operations. Students interested in obtaining approval should contact the Director of Facilities Operations by e-mail, as well as the Assistant Director of Residential Education, Kourtney Arcaba. The e-mail should include the student’s name, place of residence, contact information, style of hammock, and location where hammock will be placed. Hammocks will not be permitted in locations that will interfere with egress from buildings, impede grounds maintenance, or harm property. The Director of Facilities Operations or designee shall have the sole discretion to determine whether to grant any request to use a hammock on college property. It shall be the student’s responsibility to use and maintain hammocks in a safe manner per the manufacturer’s specifications and any conditions imposed by the Director of Facilities Operations. Any hammock displaying signs of undue wear and tear must be removed by the student. Oberlin College reserves the right to remove hammocks from service for any violation of this policy or any other applicable college policy, rule, or procedure.
