There is a major fire on 7th Street near NYU’s 7th Street residence hall, resulting in a collapsed building. We have safely evacuated the nearby dormitory and the nearby Tisch School of the Arts’ studio facility. The Barney Building, located at 34 Stuyvesant Street, has been closed and Department of Art and Art Professions classes held in this facility have been canceled for today. There are no reports of any injuries to members of the NYU community. Our thoughts and prayers are with our neighbors and the brave firefighters battling the blaze.

Any resident of the 7th Street dormitory will be accommodated at Palladium Hall. In addition, meal-plan vouchers are available at the Student Resource Center, located on the second floor of the Kimmel Center, for these residents displaced by the fire.

The Tisch School of the Arts has canceled tonight's 8 p.m. performance of "Three Sisters" at its Atlas Theatre, located at 111 2nd Avenue.
