The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses. Compliance is monitored by the United States Department of Education, which can impose civil penalties, up to $35,000 per violation, against institutions for each infraction and can suspend institutions from participating in federal student financial aid programs.

In compliance with this, we provide the following information which outlines the fires that have occurred in on-campus student housing facilities and the current fire safety systems in these on-campus student housing facilities:
