Fire - Student Code 5.3.2 - Arson/Fire Safety

Starting or attempting to start a fire, or acting in a manner that disregards the fire safety policies which results in a fire is prohibited in or around the residence halls. Negligent behavior such as not monitoring cooking and causing smoke or fire resulting in a fire alarm may be subject to discipline procedures and sanctions. Any student who discovers a fire, no matter how insignificant he/she thinks it is, should sound the alarm by pulling the nearest pull station and notify the front desk staff, a resident assistant (RA), or hall director immediately. The building must be evacuated before attempting to contain the fire.
