When the fire alarm sounds you MUST exit your room, shut your door, and leave the
building at the nearest safest exit. Once you have left the building please gather at the
following locations:
North Residents
– Make your way to the North Hall Parking Lot. Once everyone has
gathered the staff may choose to relocate you to a more suitable location
(Example: Dining Center).
Gilliland and South Residents
– Make your way to the Gilliland/South Parking Lot. Once
everyone has gathered the staff may choose to relocate you to a more suitable location
(Example: Gym).
Once the Devils Lake Fire Department has determined it is safe, residents will be allowed
back into the building.
TORNADO/SEVERE WEATHER
The warning signal is steady tone or ringing of bells lasting 3 to 5 minutes. Students living
in Gilliland and South should go to the basement next to Central Receiving, and students in
North Hall should go to the basement areas next to the kitchen. Once the all clear has been
given, you may be allowed to return your your room.
CHECKING IN AND OUT OF THE RESIDENCE HALLS
CHECKING IN
When students check into the residence hall, check with the residence hall office to
verify room assignments. You will be asked to sign a Room Inventory and Condition Form.
The purpose of this form is to document any damages or irregularities which exist in your
room so that when you check out you will not be charged for damages which are not
your responsibility. After checking in, you should inform your Resident Assistant (RA) of any
additional furnishings which you are moving into your room. Please note the
following guidelines.
01. Most furniture will be approved. Furniture in poor, dirty or broken-down condition,
and oversized furniture not designed for small, one-room accommodations is not allowed.
Furniture must be positioned to allow easy and full access to the room. No articles
(blankets, etc.) may be placed, as to block physical or visual access to the room. There must
be a clear path from the door to the window.
02. All standard furnishings must remain with the room and may not be removed or
exchanged between rooms. All items listed on the room inventory must be in place when
the student checks out.
02. No additional fixtures may be installed and no tampering with electrical equipment
is allowed.
