Water Pipe Replacement

Emergency repair for a domestic water (bathrooms, lounges, sinks, water fountains etc.) line leak at Clark and Roper Halls. FM will be excavating between these two buildings.
This repair will involve a shutdown of domestic water at 10:30PM Friday 20 on South Campus that will impact: Clark Hall, Roper Hall, Bender Library, McKinley Bldg., Letts Hall, and possibly Anderson Hall, and Centennial Hall.  

It is FM's expectation that all repairs will be completed and water restored to all of these buildings by or before 6AM on Saturday, April 21. As an added precaution FM will also be installing "shut-off" valves on the South Side of Bender Library, Clark and Roper Halls during the outage. This will allow us to restore water to all buildings except Clark and Roper should we encounter unforeseen difficulties with completing the noted repair.

Campus Wide Seasonal Switchover from Heating to Cooling

Due to the projected weather forecast, Facilities Management has outlined the new schedule below to switch our HVAC system from heating to cooling. Please note that this schedule is subject to change if the weather pattern changes. If this is the case, we will send an updated email.

The process will occur over a period of 6 days. Cooling will not take place campus-wide simultaneously due to unique piping infrastructure of certain buildings. Please share this information.

  • Monday, April 23: Residence Staff switch over fan coil units where applicable (Only: Anderson South and Centennial)
