Residence Life Emergency Alert Plan

Weather, natural disaster, and security concerns can bring about emergencies in a residence hall(s). Residents in Georgia Tech housing can be assured that the members of the Residence Life and Housing staff, as well as other campus agencies, are working together for emergency preparedness and response.

  • Residence Life staff are trained in crisis management and have protocols designed to handle most emergencies, in coordination with Georgia Tech Police, Counseling Center, Dean of Students, and other Atlanta and State agencies.
  • All residents have a responsibility to keep their halls secure. Do not prop open doors or allow others to enter a building behind you. More security information is located in "Technically Speaking: The Department of Housing Community and Services Guide".
  • Be vigilant and observant of anything or anyone that might be suspicious and call the Georgia Tech Police Department immediately at 404-894-2500. These include: suspicious or unattended packages, containers or vehicles; signs of break-ins or attempted unauthorized entries; unusual odors or substances; fellow residents or any campus community member about whom you have concerns; or people in residence halls and other buildings who you think should not be there.

When alerted to an emergency:

  • Students should seek shelter in the closest building. In a residence hall, residents should remain in their room unless instructed otherwise by Institute staff (Housing student staff, Residence Life staff, GTPD, others).
  • If evacuation is necessary, residents should evacuate the building using the nearest evacuation route and proceed to the evacuation location listed below for their building. Any larger evacuation will be handled (and announced) by emergency crews (GTPD, Atlanta Police or Fire, GEMA, etc.).
  • For tornado warnings only, all residents should relocate away from any rooms with windows and relocate into their bathroom or out in the hallways in the lower levels not adjacent to any windows or exterior facing door.
