Dear Campus Community,

Each year, Facilities Services performs necessary maintenance on the university’s steam system, which requires shutting off the steam throughout campus to complete maintenance services at the plant, throughout the steam tunnels and in each building.  This process affects buildings’ hot water supply, heating & all equipment that uses steam.

In 2016, the shutdown will occur June 12 starting at 6 pm and end June 15 at 4 pm.  During the shutdown, crews will be upgrading a complete control system and new hardware at the Energy Center along with routine preventative maintenance.

Because this annual process affects many departments across campus, we want to provide as much notice as possible.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding during these annual maintenance activities.

For questions or concerns, please contact Les Walton  (541)737-4395 or Facilities Services (541)737-2969.

Due to failure, the Owen Hall Elevator is shut down for an undetermined amount of time.  Capital Planning and Development and Facilities Services are collaboratively exploring options regarding possible major renovation or replacement.  The elevator in Kearny Hall can be used to access the second and third floors. ADA access to the fourth floor will not be possible.  Contact Facilities Services if ADA access to the fourth floor is needed so that special arrangements can be made.  Updates will be communicated as information becomes available.

For questions, please contact Facilities Services (541)737-2969.

Due to renovations related to staff relocations from Peavy Hall, Snell Hall will experience contractor congestion and noise over the next several weeks.  The bulk of the initial work will be taking place from 6:00 pm to 4:00 am each night to limit the impact to building occupants.  However, the majority of the renovation will be during regular business hours starting in a couple of weeks.  This will mainly be finish work and should not create too much noise.  We will send out additional updates as new information becomes available.


Please contact the project managers Rick Freeman 541-231-5368 or Andrew Gray 541-737-7651  if you have any issues or concerns.  You can also contact Facilities at 541-737-2969.
