University Housing Fire Safety

The safety of each student, especially those students living on campus, is a primary concern of the University. Environmental Health and Safety and the Richmond and Westhampton colleges deans' offices take the issue of fire safety seriously.

To ensure a high level of safety, the University adopted a Fire Safety Policy in 1987. The Fire Safety Policy is reviewed annually and new components are added in keeping with our overall belief for continuous improvements. Download the complete policy for reference.
