Fire Safety at Dormitories

Thirty-seven of the State University of New York’s 64 campuses have on-campus dormitories housing about 70,000 students in total. These dormitories must be inspected at least annually for fire hazards, and campus officials must perform fire drills at certain times during the academic year. We audited the campuses’ compliance with these and other fire safety regulations and found that the campuses were in compliance with the regulations. We also identified opportunities for SUNY to strengthen certain aspects of its fire safety programs.
