Winter Break 2023 Construction and Maintenance
As part of our ongoing support of campus facilities, the electricity, heat, and water on both Main and East campus will be turned off on December 27 and 28, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. each day to address immediate needs in our electrical systems. The work will occur in conjunction with major repairs that PEPCO, our electricity provider, will conduct during this time. Facilities Management will work with the departments affected directly by this outage. The affected buildings will be preheated the night before the outage and all services will be restored both evenings when work is completed for the day. During the outage, there will only be emergency power to the buildings for emergency egress lighting. All fire and life safety systems will be active.
Off-campus buildings will not be affected.
Additionally, the following areas will undergo maintenance and construction work:
Bender Library Building Façade – Scaffolding will be installed and minor drilling work will take place during regular business hours.
- Katzen Museum Façade – Scaffolding will be installed and minor drilling work will take place during regular business hours.
- Sports Center Garage – Surface sealant replacement work will take place, resulting in minor noise and rolling partial closures.
- Sports Center Tunnel – Partial road closures will be in effect as overhead work will be underway resulting in minor drilling noise during regular business hours.
