Safety and Storage at Lincoln
Means of Egress
The accepted practices regarding Means of Egress at Lincoln includes all balconies, stairwell landings and stairways associated with these apartments.
The outside areas in front of apartments are public spaces and thus, need to comply with the safety codes. Buildings where the balconies are small and limited such as Buildings #2, #7, #9 and #11 should maintain the space as is for free and clear access and have no impediments for fire and emergency personnel. Massachusetts' state regulations include having access in a continuous manner to all hand rails on balconies and stairwells without any impediments.
Residents are given guidelines for complying with Massachusetts' state regulations. Family Housing staff will report violations of the Massachusetts' state regulations to Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S), a campus agency that establishes, implements, and monitors University policies regarding all forms of safety and environmental health. EH&S will be called to help enforce sanitary conditions in apartments including compliance with Family Housing roach monitoring and spraying program. EH&S staff routinely inspect areas outside the apartments without prior notification. EH&S can be reached at 545-2682.
Storing Belongings Outside Lincoln Apartments
The outside areas in front of apartments are public spaces and thus, need to comply with the Massachusetts' state regulations.
Residents cannot store belongings in these public walkway areas which are impediments for fire and emergency personnel. On the second floors of Buildings #2, #7, #9, #11 none of this is "private" area and complete access needs to exist at all times.
Outside furniture - plastic/or folding lawn chairs and small tables - are allowed next to apartments.
There shall be no hanging, displaying, or installing toddler seats, tire swings or any other hanging recreational equipment in any part of the exterior grounds and common areas.
Bikes cannot be attached to the railings of buildings as they create an impediment for access to hand railings.
