The New York Education Law 6438 (Kerry Rose Sprinkler Notification Law) requires all NYS institutionally-owned or operated housing facilities, to disclose to students, a description of the facility’s fire safety system. For information regarding the sprinkler systems in each NYU residence hall, please go here.
Fire Safety Procedures
Fire safety is something that the entire University community takes very seriously. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the fire procedures of your building. Know the location of all stairwells and exits so that you know how to exit from anywhere in the building and the location of pull stations. Whenever the fire alarm in the building sounds, you must evacuate immediately. If, however, your door is hot to the touch, remain inside, seal the door with wet towels, and contact the Front Desk by phone or intercom immediately to report your location.
Hayden and D’Agostino Halls have fire safety sprinklers throughout. This includes all public spaces and the kitchens and bedrooms in every apartment.
