Campus Heat Policy


Updated November 7, 2017

It is that time of year, where temperatures begin to drop and leaves begin to turn! University Housing is working with Facilities Services to begin to turn on heat in our halls.

Campus Heat Policy:

Facilities Services Department personnel change over building systems from air conditioning to heating each fall. Because of the equipment installed throughout the campus, buildings must be changed over separately.

Facilities Services performs the changeover on the basis of priorities established 1) to maintain required temperatures to protect equipment and research in progress, and 2) to serve the greatest number of individuals and activities.

Changeover is based on weather predictions. The wide swings in temperature during the fall of the year have made this policy necessary.
