With the cold weather upon us, the Office of Residence Life reminds you to close your windows in your room and/or apartment. Windows left open can cause broken water pipes, and can lead to damage charges.
Here are the top 3 ways you can prepare your room and/or apartment for Wisconsin winter temperatures!
- Make sure the storm window is closed to prevent excess cold air from entering the room.
- Keep the window(s) closed and do not place a fan by the window.
- Submit a maintenance request online or by calling the Community Center front desk at (920) 465-2040 to report an issues in a timely fashion.
The thermostats are set to approximately 68 degrees, but will vary from 67 degrees to 72 degrees depending on where the system is in the heating cycle. Students should not open windows to regulate heat because it the temperature drops too quickly pipes can freeze. The person who left the window open is held responsible for damages so it is important to keep windows closed and let the room maintain a consistent temperature.
If you are experiencing issues please report it immediately! You should also report issues with exterior doors that are beeping or not latching completely because of ice buildup. We want to keep the buildings comfortable and also help ensure the safety of residents.
