Fire drills are conducted in all residential facilities once per year. The drills generally occur within one month of the start of the fall semester. The University of Illinois at Chicago Environmental Health and Safety Office conducts the drills in coordination with the Campus Housing Staff and the University of Illinois at Chicago Police Department. The residents are aware that a fire drill will take place: however, they are not notified in advance of the date or time of the scheduled drill. When the fire alarm system is activated, all residents are informed that a drill is taking place, and that they are required to exit the building. The Environmental Health and Safety Office will do a room check to ensure that all occupants have evacuated.

Reporting List

To report a fire occurring in a university residence hall:

  1. Call UIC Police Department at (312) 555-5555
  2. Contact a Campus Housing staff member
