Fire Drills January 16 – 25, 2018: Details, Exceptions and Room Entry

Fire drills will be conducted within all on-campus residence halls and apartments January 16 – 25, 2018, beginning at 5:00 p.m. each day. The complete schedule is above. 

All occupants of the building are required to leave during the alarm. Your community’s Evacuation Location is located on page 18 of the Living on Campus Handbook.

Residential Life staff will enter your room to determine that you have properly evacuated during the alarm. This is in accordance with the Department of Residential Life Academic-Year Contract.

During the fire alarm, staff members will address any violation of policy that is observed. If a violation is observed, the staff member will follow appropriate protocol, including, but not limited to: confiscation of contraband or illegal items, as well as documentation and subsequent outcomes through the student conduct process.

Notice of room entry and notification of any actions that should be taken will be communicated to you via paperwork left in a visible area in your room or apartment. For more information, please contact your Resident Assistant (RA) or Residence Life Coordinator (RLC).
