13. What should I do when my room is either too hot or too cold?

If your office is not at an acceptable temperature, please submit a work request online and Facilities will do their best to address the issue in a timely manner.

During seasonal changes you can expect delays in comfort levels. It takes time for the equipment to come on line and regulate temperatures accordingly. In these transition periods please prepare for the conditions in your offices, labs, and classrooms.

In an effort to reduce the internal heat in the buildings please shut off lights, coffee pots, copy machines, computers, etc., if possible when not in use.
