8:03 a.m., Oct. 14, 2013--As occurs every spring and fall, University of Delaware Facilities, Real Estate and Auxiliary Services is in the process of preparing the campus buildings for the changing seasons, in this case from cooling to heating.

This major operational change is resource intensive and has significant impact on equipment, so it must only be performed once per season.

FYI Stories

Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

Unfortunately, this means that in some buildings, space temperatures may be cooler 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 when needed. Long-range forecasts will determine when the final changeover is made.

Members of the campus community can continue to report maintenance problems to Facilities at 831-1141 or through the online Fixit form.
