  • Facilities Update: Switch from Cooling to Heating Campus Wide

    Fall marks the time of year when the leaves change colour, the weather cools and Brock’s Facilities Management staff prepare the main campus for the heating season.

    Buildings will be going into heating mode to compensate for the typical fall season daily cycles of low nighttime temperatures and higher daytime temperatures. Some areas in the buildings might also experience fluctuations in temperature as the building systems respond to outdoor changes.

    Please remember building equipment is shared among various spaces; changing the setpoint in your thermostat could also affect the temperatures of others in nearby areas as the buildings attempt to tend to each space’s different requirements.

    Although fluctuations in space temperatures are normal this time of the year, you should notify Facilities Management Customer Service at x3717 or email fm@brocku.ca if an area is experiencing extreme or ongoing temperature issues.
