Personal Space Heaters on Campus

Electric space heaters used to supplement central heating consume significant amounts of electricity and can be dangerous.  To maintain a safe and comfortable working/learning environment while optimizing energy costs and consumption, GRCC implemented an energy conservation policy that restricts the use of personal space heaters. Should an area’s temperature fall outside of the college’s acceptable temperature range, Facilities will address the situation and may provide that space with a temporary supplemental heat source until the temperature issue can be resolved. Please be advised that any personal space heaters on campus are subject to confiscation by Facilities.

Thank you for your support and assistance in keeping our campus as safe and energy-efficient as possible.
