In the event of building closure, it may be necessary to temporarily re-locate academic or administrative services to an alternate facility. In this case, the affected academic or administrative unit should implement its internal contingency plan for re-location. While alternate facilities will be provided as soon as possible, the re-located unit should be prepared to identify the critical functions that are essential to be re-established immediately, and the functions that can be temporarily deferred. The contingency plan should also identify the minimum resources required to establish essential operations at an alternate location, including any internal information systems operated by the unit.
To facilitate temporary shelter, certain buildings for each sector have been designated as temporary shelter. These are:
Sector I: Regenstein Library, Crown Field House, Bartlett Hall
Sector II: Rockefeller Chapel, Crown Field House, Crerar Library
Sector III: Stuart Hall, Harper Library, Bond Chapel, Crown Field House, Bartlett Hall, Regenstein Library
Sector IV: Regenstein Library, Crown Field House, Bartlett Hall
Sector V: Rockefeller Chapel, Harper Library, Graduate School of Business
All shelters are included on the evacuation map.
The following sites may be used for additional shelter and/or re-location:
- Kent Chemical Laboratory (auditorium);
- Oriental Institute (Breasted Hall);
- Social Science Research (Room 122);
- Goodspeed Hall (Fulton Recital Hall); and
- Graduate School of Business (Charles M. Harper Center).
Every effort will be made to re-open closed buildings as soon as it is safe to do so. If multiple facilities are closed following a major emergency, re-opening of buildings will be addressed in priority order. Generally, the first priority will be (1) facilities that house patients and animals, and (2) facilities that are critical to the University’s emergency response. The second priority will be critical research facilities. The third priority will be (1) student housing, and (2) general academic and administrative facilities.
