Annual Campus Steam Outage

Annual Campus Steam Outage

Each year Facilities Management and Safety will use an annual steam outage to allow for repairs to the steam system on campus. This outage will shut down the steam across the entire campus so that technicians can safely repair the steam system. We will announce the dates for the steam outages in advanced time to allow for the campus to prepare and be aware of the outage. Please see the below scheduled dates and information:

Upcoming Scheduled Steam Outages

2020 Outage Dates: May 11th– 22nd


During the above dates, the entire campus will be without steam. This will affect the air conditioning capabilities at Morton, and Alden. In other buildings there may be temperature variations depending upon their system capabilities. Additionally, any special equipment relying on steam to function will be inoperable (for example, some autoclaves are reliant upon steam).

This outage also affects the production of domestic hot water in many of our buildings, including residence halls. The following is a list of Residence Halls that WILL have hot water during the outage:
