Emergency Evacuation Plans

Layered graphic of evacuation plans

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.
