Fire Safety

All residence halls and apartments owned and operated by the University are in compliance with Rhode Island state fire codes. Salve Regina reviews the fire safety systems in our residence halls and apartments on a regular basis and makes upgrades, repairs or revisions when problems are identified. Licensed technicians certify these systems are working properly as prescribed by state fire codes.

Fire Reporting Statistics

The Higher Education Opportunity Act requires all U.S. institutions of higher education to produce an annual fire safety report outlining fire safety practices, standards and all fire-related on-campus statistics. Salve Regina's fire safety report details all information required by this law as it relates to the University.

Fire Safety in Assembly Occupancies

Salve Regina's policy for fire safety in assembly occupancies defines procedures that ensure compliance with fire safety rules and regulations for University events. Whenever 50 or more people are expected to attend an event inside a Salve Regina owned or leased property, the individual sponsor or representative of the sponsoring organization must review these procedures prior to the event and assure compliance before and during the event.
