1,525: Personal Use of University Property

Last Revised: October 2002

In accordance with NRS 281A.400 and Board of Regents Handbook Title 4.1.25, employees of the University of Nevada, Reno may not use university time, property, equipment or other facility to benefit their personal or financial interest. However, as provided in NRS 281A.400 (7), limited use for personal purposes is allowable if the use does not interfere with performance of an employee's duties, the cost and value related to the use is nominal, and the use does not create the appearance of impropriety or of university endorsement. Also, personal use must not interfere with official institutional use.

Personal use of university time, property, equipment or other facility must be approved in advance by the employee's dean or vice president. If there is a cost to the university as a result of a use that is authorized pursuant to this policy, or if the university would ordinarily charge a member of the public for the use, the employee shall promptly reimburse the cost or pay the charge. An employee who intentionally or negligently damages university property, equipment, or other facility shall be held responsible for the resultant damage.
