Help U save energy over the holidays

Ventilation in most campus buildings will be reduced during the holidays to save energy. Those whose areas will be fully staffed during the Dec. 23-Jan. 2 period are advised to contact Building Automations Services with work schedules by Dec. 15 so that full ventilation can be maintained during the holidays.

Animal research and other critical facilities that normally require 24-hour-per-day ventilation will not undergo reductions during this period.
