Spring weekend begins Thursday at UConnPosted: Updated:
State, Mansfield and UConn police were preparing annual spring weekend festivities that begin on Thursday.
Over the last few years, the university has eliminated all non-student-related events at the Storrs campus during the weekend.
However, several student-run events are planned including an outdoor movie on Thursday evening and a suicide prevention fair on Saturday.
The following restrictions have been put in place for the weekend:
- No guests in dorms
- No guest in dining halls
- Parking restrictions
- Monitoring cars on campus
- DUI spot checks
- Visitors must wear wristband
"Any spring weekend of old will not happen again," said officer Hans Rhynhart of the UConn police. "OK if you are coming for a planned university event, but don't come up looking to find a party."
Rhynhart added the goal is restricting influx of non-students.
