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

'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.

HealthyU in 2015

The HealthyU Employee Wellness program provides resources for University of Delaware faculty and staff to address their fitness-related resolutions in the New Year.

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.
