Fire Safety

Residential Fire Safety is a serious issue due to the population density and the potential for injury and loss that could occur as a result of a fire. In order to reduce fire hazards and comply with state fire codes, the College has established the following policies and procedures. Residents are expected to know and follow these procedures. Violators may face disciplinary action and/or arrest.

Learn More About Fire Safety

A. Fire Drills and Evacuation

Each residential community will conduct periodic fire drills to familiarize students and staff with the proper evacuation procedures and escape routes. Evacuation procedures and routes are posted on the inside of each door in residential rooms and throughout the buildings.

All students should familiarize themselves with the evacuation procedures, know the location of all the exits in their living area and how to reach them in case they need to evacuate in total darkness. When the alarm sounds, all persons in the building are required to exit the building immediately and remain outside until informed by Residence Life and Housing staff members that it is permissible to return.

There is a designated alternative shelter location for each residential community; in instances of inclement weather and/or prolonged evacuation, residents will be directed to the appropriate shelter facility.

Failure to evacuate a building during a fire alarm is a violation of residential community rules and can result in disciplinary action.

B. Fire Detection/Fighting Equipment

Each residential facility is equipped with heat and smoke sensors, fire extinguishers and fire alarm pull boxes. Residents should familiarize themselves with the location of this equipment upon moving into a residential community. Tampering with any fire protection equipment is prohibited. Intentional activation of alarm systems for any reason other than reporting a fire is strictly prohibited.

C. Fire Evacuation Procedures

In order to ensure the safety of all residents and visitors of the residential community, the following guidelines must be followed. When an alarm is sounded, all residents and visitors should:

1. Immediately put on hard-soled shoes and clothing appropriate to weather conditions, as evacuation may be for an extended period of time. Take a towel to cover the face. This will aid breathing if there is smoke.
2. Close all windows.
3. Check room door before opening to see if it is hot. Smell for smoke. If the door is hot or you smell smoke, it should not be opened. Seal the cracks at the bottom and sides of the door with a towel or clothing. If trapped, call University Police (x5555), give the hall and room number and then go to the window to attract the attention of the fire department.
4. If there is no sign of prohibitive heat or smoke, leave the hall by the nearest exit, using the stairwells. Do not use elevators.
5. Vacate the building by the shortest, safest route, and gather at the designated area (at least 100 feet from the building). Follow instructions given by Residence Life staff, University Police, Fire Marshal and Fire Department Personnel. Remain outside until directed to reenter or proceed to designated alternative shelter.

D. Furnishings, Decorations, and Other Prohibited Items

Furniture, decorations and other items which increase the flammability of residents’ rooms or public areas may be prohibited at the discretion of Residence Life staff. Excessive amounts of combustible decorations are particularly dangerous because they can promote rapid spread of flames in the event of a fire. Suspending combustible materials, such as tapestries, curtains, flags, fishnets, etc., is strictly prohibited. Window curtains must meet NFPA 701 standard. Additionally, any personal furniture must meet NFPA 701 standard. In common areas (i.e. bathrooms, hallways, and lounges) similar fire code regulations exist.
Possession and/or ignition of combustible materials is prohibited. Examples include, but are not limited to, candles, wax burners, incense, sterno, microwave ovens, rice cookers, hoverboards and certain types of lamps (including oil-burning, halogen, torchiere- and tree-style, as well as multi-head or “octopus-style” and lava lamps). Prohibited items that are found will be confiscated by Residence Life staff and will not be returned to the owner.
The illustrations below show examples of some prohibited lamps. The list of prohibited lamps (above) and examples below are for reference only and are not intended to show every possible lamp that is prohibited in the residence halls.

Octopus (Tree-style), oil burning, multi-head, torchiere, lava, halogen

Left to Right: Octopus (Tree-style), oil burning, multi-head, torchiere, lava, halogen.
E. Electrical Load

The following guidelines have been developed to prevent the overloading of electrical circuits which can create a life-threatening hazard.

1. The use of electrical extension cords is strictly PROHIBITED. However, circuit-breaker-protected multi-outlet power strips that are UL-approved can be used. "Daisy chaining" (connecting one or more of these power strips to each other) is not permitted. All cords must be UL approved and recommended for intended use, in perfect condition, and either 12 or 14 gauge.

2. Circuit-breaker-protected multi-outlet power strips that are Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL)-approved can be used. These must be plugged directly into a wall receptacle and may not be joined together to extend their reach. They must be in perfect condition, recommended for the intended use and either 12 or 14 gauge.

a. If the appliance using the power strip requires grounding (three-pronged plug), only grounded power strips shall be used.
b. Cords may not pass through wall openings, doorways, partitions, or under rugs.
c. Cords may not be spliced, tied in knots, wrapped around metal fixtures, or draped over pipes.

3. Heavy load appliances, such as refrigerators and blow dryers, must be plugged directly into permanent outlets by the cord attached to the appliance.

4. Multiple outlet adapters (exclusive of power strips permitted in 2. above) are not permitted.

F. Fire Safety Inspections

Residence Life staff inspect all residential living units (including bedrooms) with advance notice at least once each semester. Residents are advised of any fire safety and health problems and the required remedy.

G. Fire Safety Information and Education

The College offers a variety of opportunities and resources for students to learn about the various aspects of fire prevention. Students are encouraged to educate themselves about their personal fire safety needs. In addition to the information contained in theResident Student Handbook, additional information can be found at www.oswego.edu/residence-life-and-housing/fire-safety. Fire safety discussions will be a part of meetings conducted by Residence Life staff. Residence Life staff can also be considered as resources for such information. Any fire concerns should immediately be brought to their attention so proper preventative action can be taken.

H. In Case of Fire

Should a fire occur, the standard procedure for fires should be followed:

1. Notify the Fire Department by using the pull boxes. This notifies all residents of the need to evacuate the building.
2. If the fire is very small (wastebasket, smoldering matter) and you have been trained, you may try to fight it. Keep near the doors so you can escape. Stay low, away from heat and smoke. Aim extinguisher stream at base of fire. For floor level fires, sweep from edge of the room inward. If it is a wall fire, sweep from the bottom of the wall upward. Stay outside closets, etc. and shoot inward. Ventilate only after fire is completely out.
3. Use good judgment. The above responsibilities should be undertaken with due attention to your own personal safety.
4. Fire Extinguisher Use. The following information clarifies extinguisher type and use should it be necessary to put out a fire:

a. Pressurized water extinguisher: Wood, paper, textiles, and other ordinary combustible materials.
b. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extinguisher: Flammable liquids such as oils, solvents, grease, paint, etc. Live or energized electrical or electronic equipment.
c. ABC (All-Purpose) Dry Chemical extinguishers: Wood, paper, plastic, combustible and flammable liquids, grease, paint and energized electrical.

I. Setting fires is prohibited with the exception of designated fireplaces.

Possession and/or ignition of combustible materials is prohibited. Examples include, but are not limited to, candles, wax burners, incense, sterno, microwave ovens, rice cookers, hoverboards and certain types of lamps (including oil-burning, halogen, torchiere- and tree-style, as well as multi-head or “octopus-style” and lava lamps). PROHIBITED ITEMS WILL BE CONFISCATED AND NOT RETURNED.

Guests and Visitations

Residents may host visitors in their residential community during the a.m. or p.m. hours with the consent of their roommate and/or suitemates/townhousemates. In order to aid in protecting personal safety, personal property and the right to privacy, the following definitions and procedures apply:

  1. A resident of a community is one who is officially assigned to that community, has paid their room and board fees or has had those fees deferred by the Student Accounts office, has been issued appropriate room and building keys/codes by the building staff and has a completed Room/Townhouse Inventory & Condition Record on file in the residential community office.

  2. A visitor is any person not a resident of that particular residential community.

  3. All visitors must have a resident of the community they are visiting as their host.

  4. Visitors between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 12 midnight must proceed directly to their host's room and upon leaving proceed directly to the main exit. Visitors between the hours of 12 midnight and 8:00 a.m. must be met by their host at the front desk of the hall or main entrance to the townhouse. Phones are provided between the outer and locked inner front doors of each residence hall.

  5. The resident host is responsible for assuring that the visitor knows and adheres to College and residential community rules and regulations. The host and visitor are subject to disciplinary action for failure to comply with the rules. The host may be held responsible for the actions of his/her visitor which may include receiving disciplinary charges when the guest violates College policy and/or residential community rules and regulations. Further, the Residence Life staff may ask a visitor to leave the building whenever that visitor's presence is determined by the staff member to be disruptive to the residential community.

  6. It is the obligation of every resident to immediately report to the Residence Life staff or University Police the presence of any nonresident not hosted by a resident and not complying with these regulations.

  7. Residents should attempt to resolve roommate conflicts stemming from visitation on a personal basis; however, mediation support will be provided by the Residence Life staff as needed.

  8. Visitors will not be permitted if staff determine that their presence prohibits reasonable access to and use of the room/suite/townhouse by roommates/suitemates/townhousemates, or the visitor’s presence is determined to be disruptive to other members of the community.

  9. Visitors may only use residential community rest room facilities designated for use by persons of their gender.

  10. Each residential community government has the option to further restrict visitation.

Guns, Explosives, Flammables

Firearms, illegal weapons, firecrackers, explosives, harmful chemicals, and flammable liquids (i.e., oil-based paints, turpentine, lighter fluid and gasoline) are not to be stored or used in or around residential facilities. Internal combustion engines are prohibited within the buildings. Refer to the "Weapons and Dangerous Materials" section of the Student Handbook for the complete policy description.

Housekeeping

Residents are expected to maintain a level of cleanliness in their living unit compatible with reasonable health and safety and College standards. The College reserves the right to establish and enforce those expectations for individuals in order to insure reasonable compatibility with roommate(s) as well as health and safety. All residents are required to participate in the residential community recycling program.

Keys

Each resident is assigned keys, lock combinations and/or access codes when checking into residential facilities and is responsible for the return of assigned keys upon termination of residence. Loss of keys will result in charges for replacement. Unauthorized duplication of keys is prohibited.

Learn about Emotional Support and Service Animals (Accessibility Services)

Security

Security is a community issue which depends upon the complete cooperation of all residents and their guest(s). Residents are responsible for the general security of their residential community. Acts which compromise building security are prohibited (i.e., propping open exterior doors normally locked for security purposes).

Entering rooms assigned to other students or non-public areas such as mechanical rooms or desk areas without appropriate authorization is prohibited. Access to residential facilities beyond the lobby/Commons areas is limited to residents, residents' invited guests and authorized College staff.

When students become residents of a community, they are issued an I.D. sticker for placement on the front of their student I.D. This sticker provides for easy verification as a resident of that community, thus facilitating easy entry into their assigned community. When moving from a residential community, students must present their student I.D. card so the residential community sticker can be replaced (keys to that community must also be surrendered at sign-out).

All exterior doors are locked 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Persons who leave a locked exterior door open are endangering the security of residents and their property. Anyone observed or proven to have done so is subject to disciplinary action. It is the obligation of every resident to immediately report to the Residence Life staff or University Police the presence of any nonresident not hosted by a resident and not complying with these regulations.

Safety & Security

Residential Students are responsible for providing their student ID card to access their residence hall, dining facilities, and must be presented to all college personnel upon request.

Lost ID policy

The ID & Meal Plan Office, Room 503, Culkin Hall, (phone 315-312-2588) administers the College ID and Meal Card Plan. New students are issued their first ID at no cost, which is used throughout their attendance at the College. Replacement cost for a lost card is per the fee schedule posted in the ID & Meal Plan Services webpage.

Learn about Break Housing

Residents may leave personal property in assigned accommodations during periods of recess. However, the College cannot guarantee security or assume responsibility for any loss of those belongings. There is no storage available over the summer. For the purpose of this contract, personal property shall include any property, excluding College-owned furnishings, in the possession of the resident, located in the confines of their assigned quarters or on the grounds of the campus. Residents are encouraged to obtain insurance coverage for such belongings. The resident’s and/or the parent’s or guardian’s acceptance of this contract shall be construed as acceptance of any and all such risk.

All residents must vacate the residential community and remove all personal belongings from the premises in accordance with the termination or expiration of this contract. If personal belongings are not removed from the premises, the resident, by signing this contract, authorizes and agrees to pay the room rental charge to the College for each day that the room was not available for reassignment by the College. Further, the resident agrees to pay such fees as are assessed by the College for the labor involved in the removal and temporary storage of the resident’s personal belongings, and the College shall not be responsible for any resulting loss or damage to those belongings abandoned by the resident. 

Housing and room assignments are non-transferable; students may not assign this contract or sublet the premises or any part thereof. Subletting includes, but is not limited to, short-term or temporary rental arrangements such as those offered through peer-to-peer services. Assigning or subletting may result in disciplinary action and/or cancellation of the contract without compensation. 

Residents will be held responsible for any deterioration in the condition of their assigned room/suite/townhouse (including both sides of doors), its assigned furnishings, assigned bulletin board (as applicable) and for any loss or damage other than normal wear that may occur during their occupancy. All occupants of a living unit may be held equally responsible for losses or damages to the living unit or its furnishings and/or fixtures, including cost of replacement or repair and all reasonable expenses resulting therefrom.

Residents of a living unit are responsible for the security and use of the living unit in accordance with College and Residence Life and Housing policies, rules and regulations. Charges for loss or damage will be added to the student’s College bill and are to be paid within 30 days. 

Unauthorized use of furnishings or fixtures, including but not limited to the moving of furnishings provided in a common area into or to a resident’s living unit, is prohibited and shall result in a liability for the expense of return to the common area and/or repair or replacement of said furnishings or fixtures. Any unauthorized repairs and/or alterations made to the premises or its furnishings by a resident shall not mitigate any damage expense incurred by the resident. The College will not be liable for the amount of money incurred by the resident or any expense for the resident’s services resulting from unauthorized alteration or enhancement of the premises, its fixtures, or its furnishings. Assessment for damaged or missing property shall be made in accordance with the schedule of charges prepared by Residence Life and Housing. Items not covered by this schedule will be assessed by proration of depreciation or the cost in labor and materials to restore them. Residents are expected to report to staff specific items which they notice as damaged or in need of repair in their assigned living unit, public areas and corridors. 

Resident’s rooms are furnished with beds and mattresses, desks and desk chairs, dressers, floor lamp(s), mirrors, and wastebaskets. Rooms without closets are furnished with armoires.

Residents must review with a member of Residence Life and Housing and sign the Room/Suite/Townhouse Inventory and Condition Record form prior to taking occupancy. Upon termination of occupancy, residents must have a staff member inspect the condition of the room/suite/townhouse; whenever possible, the resident will be informed and assessed a repair or replacement charge for damaged or missing items. Residents may appeal all or any part of the damage assessment with the exception of those who choose the “Express Checkout” option or fail to checkout. Payment is to be made within thirty (30) days of the date the charge was placed on the student’s College bill. 

Removal of College furnishings from a resident’s room may result in liability to the occupant(s) for the replacement cost of the item(s) or expense incurred by the College as a result of such unauthorized removal. No such removal shall be deemed authorized unless designated in writing, dated, and signed by the resident and the Assistant Vice President of Residence Life and Housing or designee.

Windows

The removal, loss of, or damage to a window, screen or window stop from student rooms or public areas in a residential facility is prohibited and may result in an installation and/or replacement charge and disciplinary action. The placing of any objects outside the window, including aerials and similar equipment, is prohibited. Residents are prohibited from being on building ledges or roofs. Throwing objects from windows is prohibited. Opening of security screens except in emergency situations is prohibited.
