From 2011-2015, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated annual average of 4,100 structure fires in dormitories, fraternities, sororities, and other related properties. Honeywell’s Gamewell-FCI E3 series is the chosen system to keep the largest university in the nation safe from fires. 

The University of Central Florida (UCF) is the largest university in the United States, educating 64,000 students. With three newly constructed dormitories housing a total of 665 beds opened at the start of the fall semester in 2013, and a fourth new building is used for administration and maintenance; UCF was in search for a fire alarm system that can continuously grow with the its expanding campus.
