Fire Safety

Behaviour that endangers the safety of others (ie. tampering with a smoke detector, not evacuating during a fire alarm) is prohibited.


FAILURE TO EVACUATE

All students and guests are required to evacuate the building immediately after the alarm sounds.

FLAMMABLE MATERIALS

The use or possession of explosive or flammable material is not permitted in residence buildings (i.e. fireworks and propane/gasoline tanks). Barbeques are only permitted at East Village Townhouses and must be located three (3) meters away from the building and meet required standards.

FIRE SAFETY EQUIPMENT & FIRES *

Discharging, tampering with or operating any fire prevention or detection equipment for any purpose other than the control of fire is strictly prohibited. Such equipment includes fire extinguishers, pull stations, alarms and smoke and heat detectors. Tampering with fire safety equipment will typically result in a $500 fine and/or eviction. Any negligent or intentional fires started by any person can lead to a resident’s eviction.

SMOKING*

Our campus community is tobacco and smoke-free. Use of e-cigarettes, vaping, or use of any tobacco products (e.g. chew, dip, shisha, etc) is not permitted in residence or on campus. FULL POLICY
