  • Facilities Update: Main Campus Switch to Cooling

    Facilities Management trade staff are busy preparing the Main Campus cooling systems for spring and summer operation. Due to the type of building heating and cooling systems that are used at Brock University, many building on the Main Campus are not capable of heating and cooling during the same cycle.

    With the arrival of warm daytime temperatures and the outside temperatures remaining cool at night, building heating at this time of year still remains a priority. As we experience these fluctuations, some areas on the Main Campus will experience higher than normal temperatures during office hours. Facilities Management staff will continue to make the Main Campus as comfortable as possible by bringing in cool fresh air into areas until the need for cooling is constant.

    If your area experiences cooling issues, please refrain from operating any heat producing equipment which is not necessary and shut off any lighting that is not required. Offices with windows should close blinds when possible to keep out radiant heat.

    If your area is experiencing any extreme or ongoing temperature issues, please notify Facilities Management Customers service at FM@BrockU.ca or call x3717.
