Fire in Culebra Residence Hall


At approximately 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 6 the evacuation alarm went off in Culebra Residence Hall. Students were not able to reenter the hall until after midnight.

Fire was reportedly on the west side of the second floor, and was extinguished by the sprinkler system.

No students have been injured, according to an email from Jen Mullen, chief of staff.

Due to water damage in the rooms on the west side of the first and second floors, students have been displaced out of their rooms. Students have been moved to Belmont Residence halls, while others have chosen to stay with friends in other halls.

An investigation is being conducted by law enforcement, and one student has been charged at this time.

More information to come.
