Andrews and Hascall Halls Electrical Shutdown June 29 & 30, 2017

By Contributing Writer on June 22, 2017

As part of the New Residence Halls building project, we are relocating the electrical switch-gear that supplies power to Andrews Hall and Hascall Hall.

This work has been scheduled with the Village of Hamilton to occur next Thursday and Friday (6/29/17 and 6/30/17).

All power to these buildings will be shut off from 8:00 a.m. on June 29 until 5:00 p.m. on June 30 to complete the work. This will also affect HVAC and fire alarm systems.

Any perishable items in those buildings should also be removed from refrigerators and freezers, and please power off all sensitive computer equipment.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this electrical shutdown and look forward to any questions or concerns regarding the upcoming work. We hope the advance notification will allow sufficient planning to work around the scheduled shutdown.

O’Connor and Ho Science Center Air Conditioning Repairs June 23

By Contributing Writer on June 22, 2017

On Friday, June 23, 2017 from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., the air conditioning system to O’Connor and Ho Science Center will be limited. During this time frame, the outside air temperature is predicted to be in the High 60s to low 70s, and the reduced capacity should not cause any discomfort to the areas. The reason for the limited capacity is to make emergent repairs to the New Residence Hall’s chilled water supply piping.

If you have any questions, please contact Facilities Department at 315-228-7130.

Respectfully,

Please note that Alumni Hall will be closed twice in July, as part of the first-floor entrances and corridor flooring replacement project taking place from July 7 to August 4, 2017.
