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 hot water supply, heating, and all equipment that uses steam, campus wide.  The decision has been made to postpone the annual steam shut down until August in order to stay within the guidelines from the Governor, University, State and CDC’s orders.  The steam shutdown for 2020 will occur August, 24 11:00 pm – August 27, 2020 8:00 am.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you all for your understanding.

Steam will be isolated to Cascade Hall and Adams Hall on Friday April 24, 2020 at 3 p.m. to accommodate construction work on the system at Cascade Hall. The system will be returned to service on Monday, April 27, 2020 by 3 p.m. This will only affect building heat in a portion of the building supplied by steam heat.

As part of the Merryfield Hall renovation project, a steam shutdown will occur so that failing steam piping can be replaced. Temporary heating will be provided for the spaces that are occupied in the south end and east wing of the building.
