Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

Part III: Annual Fire Safety Report


University Housing and Campus Code Compliance and Fire Safety at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, in compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA), have developed an annual fire safety report. This report summarizes the reporting components required by the HEOA.

This section only applies to the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign main campus because the Illini Center campus does not have on-campus housing.

Campus Code Compliance and Fire Safety and University Housing are committed to providing students with fire safety training and a safe community for living and learning.

Fire Reporting 

If there is an active fire on campus, dial 911.

If a member of the campus community finds evidence of a fire that has been extinguished and the person is not sure whether the police department or fire department has already responded, the community member should immediately notify the Division of Public Safety at 217-333-1216.

To report evidence of a fire in University Housing, contact the following person/persons:

Associate Director, Campus Code Compliance and Fire Safety:, and then the applicable person below:

  • University Housing residence halls and apartments – 217-333-0770
  • To report evidence of a fire at the Chez Veterans Center contact: Director/LSO, Chez Veterans Center, 217-300-5368

Fire incidents reported to any of these individuals which are found to have been actual fires will be included in the annual fire statistics.

Fire log 

A log of all campus fires is maintained by Campus Code Compliance and Fire Safety. Upon receiving a report of a fire in University Housing, that report is entered in the log within two business days of receipt of that information. The log for the most recent 60 days may be viewed at Facilities and Services, Code Compliance and Fire Safety, Physical Plant Services Building, 1501 S. Oak St., Champaign, during the hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
