flames

Please help us to help you!

While cigars, cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vapes, narcotics, incense, candles, open flames, and similar haze-producing items still remain popular, they are STRICTLY PROHIBITED IN DORMS AND CAMPUS BUILDINGS!

This is because we want to do everything that we can to keep you safe, which includes having SENSITIVE FIRE DETECTION equipment in your dorm.

The alarm systems are loud and even if there is not a fire, you and your neighbors may be invited to stand outside for a while, waiting for the authorities to investigate and reset the alarm. If your use of these items does cause a fire, you are not just risking property damage. You are risking the lives of everyone in your dorm.

Please follow UTC safety guidelines, and you will be able to enjoy your dorms and the new school year without harm!
