The purpose of UTS135-Fire and Life Safety Reviews, is to ensure, prior to purchase or lease, that all University of Texas properties are in compliance with applicable fire and life safety codes.

Before any building is leased or purchased, each Institution is required to conduct a fire and life safety review of the property to identify any deficiencies and recommend corrective actions or renovations.

The Risk Control section in the Office of Risk Management is available to assist Institutions with fire and life safety reviews on new and currently owned property.
