Important message for residents of Bostwick, Johnson, Luter, Collins, Palmer, Piccolo, Davis, Taylor, Efird, Huffman, Poteat, Kitchin
All residence hall students should be aware of the consequences when windows are opened during times of below freezing temperatures. When the windows are left open, the fan coil units are forced to work harder than intended causing various heating and cooling problems. Pipes can also freeze when exposed to outside temperatures resulting in water flow out of the fan coil units and into student rooms. In the past this has caused damage, not only to student property in the offending room, but in rooms below as well. Please be aware of this information and keep windows closed during times of below freezing temperatures so that possible damage can be prevented.
