Steam Service Shutdown to Most Campus Buildings: May 16-19

Steam service to most campus buildings will be shut down from about 11:00 p.m. Sunday, May 16, to about 11:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 19, as part of the heating plant upgrade project.

Only the LoRusso Alumni and Visitor Center, the Student Apartment Complex, and the Burchfield Penney Art Center will be unaffected.

During this time, there will be no heat, no process steam for cooking or dishwashing, and no hot water, including for showering in the Sports Arena, Houston Gymnasium, or residence halls.

In buildings with cooling, members of the campus community may experience lower than usual building temperatures—because systems will not be able to reheat the cooling air—and are asked to dress accordingly.

Questions about this project may be addressed to Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we make these necessary repairs to the steam service.
