If you locate a fire in the Residence Halls, PULL A FIRE ALARM box, exit the building and notify Public Safety.

If you are not in a suite/quad room (bedroom, student bathroom, Bellamy Hall Suite Gathering Room) when the alarm goes off, proceed to the nearest fire/smoke free exit.

If you are in a suite/quad room (bedroom, student bathroom, Bellamy Hall Suite Gathering Room) when the alarm goes off, please adhere to the following rules:

  1. Wake any sleeping occupants in that room: Put on shoes, take towel and room key.
  2. Feel room door. If cool, open slowly and exit.
  3. Feel suite/quad door. If cool, open slowly and exit.
