    Does anyone know if you're allowed to longboard/skateboard from your dorm to your lectures/classes? 😂

    I've chosen Cartmel as my college but all my lectures and classes are pretty much on the other side of the bubble. I'm a fan of anything electric so my Boosted Board is one of my favorite ways of doing short journeys. I don't intend to do it everyday but does anyone know if you're allowed to use a skateboard to get to places?


    Thanks,
    Eric

    You should contact the uni to see if theres a ban. They encourage cycling in terms of commuting

    But you will need to see what the byelaws/ regulation are concerning on campus usage is. Normally its just to use common sense and not to be a nuisance when there are so many pedestrians about as you could cause an accident.

    Maybe it comes under student services?

    Just use it. If it's against the rules I'm sure someone will stop you and ask you not to ride it there, that's the worst thing that will happen.

    Yeah but he wont be bringing it all the way from his home if its not allowed so hes basically asking if theres a point in him taking it with him

    It's highly unlikely they'll actively enforce it if there is any kind of ban, but pretty much everyone (that doesn't skateboard or, profiling here a little, surf) will hate you and think you're an insufferable prick if you actually skateboard on campus between buildings and so on. So there's that...

    The spine can get busy, so I would say YES, as long as you are willing to skateboard on lesser used routes.
