TEXT SIZE

10:37 a.m., April 15, 2013--As occurs every spring and fall, University of Delaware Facilities is in the process of preparing for the changing seasons, in this case from heating to cooling. 

This year’s changeover will begin Monday, April 15, and will take approximately one week. 

FYI Stories

Two-factor authentication

Since two-factor authentication provides more security than a simple password, UD IT recommends that it be used whenever it's offered.

Faculty climate survey

The NSF ADVANCE grant team at UD has shared the results of a faculty climate survey on topics including promotion and tenure, evaluation, merit, workload, family-friendly policies, mentoring, and career satisfaction.

This major operational change is resource intensive and has significant impacts on equipment, so it is only done once per season. 

Unfortunately, this means that in some buildings, space temperatures will be warmer than usual until the changeover is complete. 

Facilities will continue to monitor nighttime low temperatures and extended weather forecasts to ensure that adequate heating is available as needed. Long-range forecasts will determine when the final changeover is made.

Continue to report maintenance problems to Facilities at 831-1141 or through the online Fixit form
