Due to a failed chiller component, Richardson Hall will be without cooling for the next several hours while repairs are being completed. This may cause higher than normal temperature levels building-wide. An additional notice will be sent out when repairs are complete and cooling is restored. This will not affect temperatures in the server rooms or Atrium.

  • A higher level of truck traffic on 35th Street and Jefferson Way.
  • The start of demolition of the metal Fairbanks Annex building will start this week.
  • A vacuum excavation truck will be onsite for exploratory work on Wednesday, August 4.

These activities will produce noise, as expected for typical construction work onsite. We will continue to provide information about other activities that may impact campus for the duration of the project.
