The occupancy limits listed below are calculated based on the room having tables, chairs or other obstructions, and for a completely empty room.

Occupancy loads marked "---" assume that the room configuration will not change. If the configuration does change, Event planners should contact the Director of EH&S to recalculate the allowable occupancy.

IMPORTANT: Connecticut State Law requires that an announcement be made regarding evacuation procedures and the location of exits at the start of all events with more than 50 attendees. It is the responsibility of the individual in charge of the event to ensure that occupancy limits are adhered to, and that a version of the following fire safety announcement is made at the beginning of the event.

"Connecticut State Fire Code requires that we point out the location of all emergency exits. The exits in this room are located (point out exits). In the event of an emergency, please quickly leave the building in an orderly manner through the nearest exit."
