Heat will be turned on across campus once we are experiencing sustained nighttime temperatures of 40°F or less with predicted continuing trends in that range. This is a guideline that will be used along with common sense dictated by specific weather patterns and operational necessity. Even during the heating season, any time the outside air temperature is above 60°F, the main heating valves will shut off automatically. This means that the heat is essentially “off” when the outside temperature reaches 60°F. For more information, please visit How my Heat Works.
A: If your room is too hot during the summer, the only recourse is to open a window or turn on a fan. If your room is too hot or too cold in the winter, please contact Facilities Services. When a "too hot" or "too cold" service request is received, the mechanic assigned to that building will respond and investigate the concern. Every call during business hours (M-F 7a-5p) will be responded to the same day. Complaints received off-hours will be handled the next business day. In the event that the entire building is experiencing heating issues, you can always contact Campus Safety(X7911), who will dispatch a mechanic through the On-Call system. Please see the How my Heat Works page for your dorm. There are valuable instructions on your dorm room’s specific heating system and how to operate it.
