The following evacuation procedures are in place for the residence halls. These procedures are to be followed when a fire alarm sounds. All students must exit the building when a fire alarm sounds, regardless of whether it is a fire drill, false activation, or actual fire. Any students who are physically unable to exit the building should immediately contact the University Police Department at 508.531.1212 from a cell phone or 911 from a campus phone. Questions regarding the following procedures should be directed to Residence Life and Housing staff (ext 1277) or the University Police Department (ext 1212).
Please use the emergency exits available in your building.
It is important to be aware of all possible exit locations in your residence hall in the event that one or more of the fire exits are unsafe.
All students should gather at their building's designated meeting place so that emergency vehicles and personnel can gain easy access to the building and ensure the safety of those who have exited the building. In the event of an emergency residence life staff will take attendance at the meeting place in order to give emergency personnel a list of individuals who may still be in the building and may need assistance exiting it. Residence life staff will also direct students to a temporary shelter if necessary.
