Student Handbook 2023-2024

Gambling Policy

Gambling is forbidden in the residence halls and apartments. Any activity illegal under New York state gaming laws is prohibited. Casino Nights and other game events for which money is not exchanged are permitted in designated areas and with special permission from the Office of Student Life. Failure to comply may result in disciplinary action.

An increasing preoccupation with gambling activities can develop into a problem behavior known as “compulsive gambling.” Individuals may seek assistance at the College’s Health & Counseling Center, if they find that they are unable to resist the impulse to gamble, despite significant loss of money and/or disruption to the personal, academic, vocational, and family areas of their lives.
