Repairs to cause temporary heat and hot water outage tonight

The heat and hot water will be shut off to the dorms and other main campus buildings from 10:00 p.m. tonight (Feb. 2) until 6:30 a.m. tomorrow in order to repair two damaged steam valves in the campus heating system.

The temperature in the dormitories should not drop more than 10 degrees, but please close all windows and window blinds to conserve residual heat.

The heat and hot water is expected to function again before 6:30 tomorrow morning; however, if repairs don't go as planned, hot water may not be restored in time for classes in the morning. Campus residents should consider showering this evening.

The administration thanks students for their patience and understanding as maintenance staff work through the night to fix the system.
