Facilities preparing campus buildings for warmer temperatures

It’s that time of year!

As spring temperatures warm, Facilities begins transitioning campus buildings from heating to air conditioning.  Due to the nature of these systems throughout our campus, “on demand” air-conditioning is not always possible. We have many water-based systems that are in danger of freezing when the weather turns cold at night, and therefore cannot be run until we are beyond the risk of nighttime freezing temps.  We monitor long range forecasts and make decisions for the long term versus what the next day or two might bring in terms of temperatures. The exposure of the building to the sun also adds to the challenge of providing cooling that satisfies everyone during these periods of temperature fluctuations.

Facilities understands warmer temperatures may create fluctuating conditions on campus, and we appreciate your patience as we work to provide you the most comfortable and sustainable learning environment possible.
