The building evacuation plan is building specific. It is important for all employees of the University to be familiar with the evacuation plan for the building that is their primary place of employment, as well as other areas that they frequent. Evacuation plans and means of egress are posted in all classrooms and most elevator lobby areas. Employees are advised to familiarize themselves with the closest route of safe egress.

Evacuation plans for each academic and administrative building on the Boston Campus are located in Section 53.0 of this EAP.

Evacuation plans for each residence hall on the Boston campus are located in Section 4.0.
