Evacuation Plan

The key to a successful evacuation is planning. Each resident must familiarize themselves with their respective residential community’s evacuation plan. Residents should also take the following tips:

Preparation for an Evacuation
Be prepared in advance to evacuate for a residential emergency:

  • Know at least two (2) exits other than the elevators
  • Know campus emergency numbers 713-743-3333 or 911
  • Participate in all fire drills and take them seriously
  • Know your meeting place outside of your residential community

Emergency Evacuation

  • If a fire alarm sounds everyone is required to evacuate the building
  • Stop whatever you are doing
  • Grab your personal possessions quickly
  • Do not take time to gather more things than you can quickly find
  • DO NOT WAIT! Walk to the nearest exit and to the designated evacuation point
  • If your nearest exit is blocked, move immediately to another exit
  • Do not re-enter the building until authorized to do so by emergency personnel. Never assume an alarm is false.

Evacuation for Persons with Disabilities/Persons Needing Assistance
If needing to evacuate the community:

  • Call University of Houston Police Department (UHPD) 713-743-3333 or 911
    • Report your name, location (room number or other areas of the building)
    • If planning to go to an emergency exit/stairwell, give the exact location.
    • Report your situation – What assistance do you require? (eg. Wheelchair use, breathing difficulties, blindness, etc.)
    • Ask others as they leave the building to inform emergency responders of your name, location, and assistance needed.
