• Evacuation Procedures for Non-Residence Halls

    In the event of fire or other emergencies but particularly fires, in non-residential buildings, at the sound of a fire alarm, occupants of the building need to evacuate the building quickly and safely and once outside, go to a pre-designated location so it can be determined that everyone is out of the building, and await further instructions from Public Safety. You must keep a safe distance from the building for personal safety and so as not to impede the work of the firefighters.

    Where building occupants should go in the event of a fire alarm or evacuation:

    • Murphy Hall: Exit building and meet in Lot #8.
    • Spruance Fine Arts Center: Exit buildings and meet in Lot #10.
    • Easton Hall: Exit the building and go up to the driveway; do not stay by water fall, go towards Lot #9.
    • Brubaker Hall: Evacuate from main entrance door up the walk towards Commons/Kuch Center. All other doors exit to the driveway and go towards Lot #9 near Spruance.
    • Commons/Kuch Center: Those exiting from the main entrance will go to the driveway and Lot #10. From the Commons ground-level and second floors, go out onto Haber Green.
    • Boyer Hall: Exit building and go to Landman Library or the Commons/Kuch Center.

    • Landman Library: Exit the Library and go over to the Dining Complex entrance.
