UTSA maintains a log of fires that have occurred in on-campus student housing in accordance with federal regulations (34 CFR §668.49)
The UTSA Fire Log is not a complete list of all fire events that have occurred on UTSA property. The following definitions apply to this fire log.
“On-campus student housing” refers only to structures containing residential occupancy for students. The UTSA Fire Log does not include neighborhood centers within student housing developments, campus facilities (administrative, academic, library, student life, or support) where students may overnight on a transient basis, vehicles, locations off UTSA property, or outdoor locations of any kind.
“On-campus student housing” consists of four developments. The UTSA Housing and Residential Life department (HRL) operates two of these, Chaparral Village and Laurel Village. Campus Living Villages (CLV) operates two of these, Chisholm Hall and University Oaks apartments.
“Fire” is “any instance of open flame or other burning in a place not intended to contain the burning or in an uncontrolled manner.” “Fire” does not include controlled burning, even when that event is contrary to policy, such as candles, smoking, or other open flames, when that open flame does not result in property damage.
UTSA statistics for fires in on-campus student housing appear in the annual Fire Report.
Effective 2015, UTSA has combined the security and fire reports into a single document. To access the current report, connect to http://utsa.edu/utsapd/ and select “Annual Security Report.”
Between 2010 and 2014, UTSA's Environmental Health, Safety, and Risk Management office provided an annual Fire Report to the community. This fire report provided:
