Heating and Cooling
There are a variety of heating and cooling systems in place in academic buildings, dormitories, and off campus University residences. The temperature in most campus buildings is controlled by a central control system in accordance with temperature guidelines set by the University. Central control of temperature also allows for temperatures to be regulated when buildings are not occupied.
Except in research labs and a few other locations which require specific temperature ranges, all centrally controlled facilities are heated to 68 degrees in the winter and cooled to 78 degrees in the summer when occupied. Occupants of campus buildings are asked to participate in University energy conservation initiatives by reporting excessive heating and cooling to the Facilities Service Center.
Room Schedules and Central Temperature Control
Room schedules effect temperature controls; classroom, lecture halls, and other rooms are heated and cooled when they are expected to be in use. Changes in room use schedules should be reported to the Facilities Service Center. Heating or cooling adjustments will be made accordingly.
To Report a Heating or Cooling Problem
All heating and cooling problems should be reported to the Facilities Service Center. Technicians will be sent to your room, academic building, or off campus residence to assess and correct the problem. Temperature adjustment requests for centrally controlled facilities will be considered within the context of temperature guidelines set by the University.
Fees for Service
There is no fee for the repair of heating systems or adjustments in temperature in University buildings.
