Power Strips and Surge Protectors

The Office of Housing and Residence Life recommends that all students use approved power strips to safeguard against electrical surges.

Students should use Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) approved power strips with a built-in circuit breaker. Power strips also must have a cord no longer than six feet and have a maximum load of 15 amps. Please do not plug a power strip into a power strip. Help us keep your room and hall safe.

To purchase on campus visit our Ball State Technology Store in Bracken Library (BL103).
