Seasonal change

University Facilities begins seasonal change from heating to cooling

TEXT SIZE

11:08 a.m., April 17, 2014--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 major operational change is resource intensive and has significant impacts on equipment, so it is only done once per season.

'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

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.
