CSUN DORMS UP TO CODE.

Byline: Robert Monroe Staff Writer

NORTHRIDGE - The 1,500 students and faculty members who live on campus at Cal State University, Northridge live in buildings up to 1990s fire and safety codes, an ironic benefit of the 1994 Northridge earthquake.

The quake damaged all 15 of the University Park Apartments. The rebuilding required them to include features up to seismic and other safety codes of the time, CSUN spokeswoman Carmen Ramos-Chandler said.

The three-story buildings all include fire doors, fire alarms, fire walls and ceiling sprinklers, which were in place and went off when the quake struck six years ago this week, Ramos-Chandler said.

The student dormitory at Seton Hall University that killed three people early Wednesday did not have sprinklers because the 48-year-old hall was built before they were required, it was reported.
