Sprinkler System

Student Housing facilities are equipped with a sprinkler system for fire safety purposes.

Remember:

  • Do not hang items from sprinkler heads, covers, or piping
  • Sprinkler heads may never be obstructed or altered
  • Nothing may be stored within 18 inches of the sprinkler head
  • Any item that hits the sprinkler head may cause it to activate

The sprinkler system is activated by contact or heat, not smoke. The University is not responsible for any damage caused by the sprinkler system. Residents that cause the system to activate will be held accountable for any damages caused to their personal property, other residents’ property, and to University property. Residents tampering with the system will face severe disciplinary action.
