Fire Safety

No Smoking Policy

In accordance with policy and to ensure a safe and more healthful environment, smoking, burning incense or candles is not permitted in any building in the housing complex. Residents who do smoke must do so outside of the residence halls. Smoking in stairwells or within 25 feet of buildings is not permitted.

Dangerous Items

Possession or use of any barbecues, highly flammable material, explosives, firecrackers are not permitted in or around the residence halls. Hot plates are not permitted in student rooms. Procedures for evacuations are posted in all student rooms and in the corridors of each hall and are to be followed during any alarm or practice drill. The resident staff is required to clear the building in the event of any fire alarm. Failure to evacuate the building is a violation of university regulations.

In case of fire:

  • Close the door of the area
  • Activate the building alarm
  • Evacuate the building
  • Give assistance to disabled persons on your floor or in your area
  • Do not return to the building until the all clear is given by emergency personnel or housing staff

Fire alarm and firefighting equipment is to be used only in the case of fire. For your protection, the fire alarm system is directly connected and monitored by University Police. Misuse or abuse of the fire alarm system or any fire safety equipment is an extremely serious offense that could result in University disciplinary action and/or criminal prosecution.
