Periodic inspections of College-owned buildings are made by the Hanover Fire Department and insurance company representatives. FO&M maintenance personnel enter all areas of the College periodically in the course of fire extinguisher, exit light and other fire equipment inspections. Building occupants (students, faculty, staff, and visitors) are requested to report any use or misuse of safety equipment as quickly as possible.

First-year students sleep in Leverone field house overnight before they leave on trips.
All Fire Equipment and Safety violations will result in an assessment of repair and/or replacement costs to the responsible party or to residence hall occupants by prorating the charges, and can subject those responsible to disciplinary action and/or criminal charges.
Persons found sleeping in non-residential buildings will be removed, including individuals in their own office areas.
