Off-Campus Housing

When young people attend college or university, they will often be living away from home for the first time. This can be a concern for parents as they try to ensure their children will be safe when they're not living under the same roof. The following is important fire safety information that every student should know before moving away from home. Parents should discuss these basic fire safety rules with their kids before dropping them off at their new dwelling.

Contact the administration offices of the college or university. They will frequently maintain a registry of available accommodations for students. Call the local fire department to determine if the building has been inspected for Fire Code compliance.
