SUMMER ENERGY CURTAILMENT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM FACILITY SERVICES
Once again, consistent with Niagara’s energy conservation efforts relative to the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, Facility Services will be consolidating building classroom usage to reduce air conditioning load during the summer to achieve this objective. Designated buildings will not be utilized after normal working hours. The air conditioning temperature for each building will be set at 80 degrees, again in compliance with the University’s energy policy. Listed below are the established on/off times for the impacted building’s air conditioning systems. While access will not be restricted, should you go into these buildings during off times you can expect the temperatures to be significantly warmer. If you are planning an event in a building that is scheduled to have the air conditioning off, please be sure to schedule the room and event using Ad Astra. The office of University Conference and Events Services will ensure that the air conditioning is available for the scheduled event. Should you have an event in these buildings, during these off times for which you would need the air conditioning turned on, please place a Facility Services work request a minimum of 72 hours in advance with specific information as to when you need the times adjusted (on and off times). The following schedule will be in effect beginning Monday, May 20, 2019 through Saturday, August 17, 2019. The Library, Golisano Center and Gallagher Center will be air conditioned at all times. Per the schedule, the following buildings will be air conditioned as follows: Thank you for your cooperation and should you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter please contact Facility Services at ext. 8430. Have a wonderful summer!
