Safety is a top priority for the University and
we ask that all faculty, students and staff actively participate to
ensure the safety of our campuses. Public
Safety has noted the practice of propping open the
fire doors in some of our buildings.
These fire doors are located in hallways and stairwells and have
self-closing mechanisms that should not be tampered with. The
purpose of the fire doors is to contain fire and smoke and to
protect the integrity of exit stairwells in the event of a
Propping open these doors puts building occupants in danger and
violates the fire code. If you see a self-closing fire door being
held open, please notify Public Safety immediately.
If you have a question regarding a possible violation, please call
Public Safety for clarification and investigation.
