Hours Change for Some Operations during Spring Break

Some campus buildings and services will have reduced operating hours or be closed for spring break March 18-24. Here's where to find information about some of the main ones:

Water Flow in Fire Sprinkler Systems Testing This Week

Facilities Management this week will test the water-flow alarms in all buildings on campus with fire-sprinkler systems. Fire alarm systems will be used for the testing and there may be a few instances where it's impossible to disable all alarm circuits, resulting in the activation of some audio/visual alarms. The tentative testing schedule is:

  • Monday-Tuesday: West Campus (Michener, McKee, Candelaria, Ross, North and South halls, Harrison and Lawrenson)
  • Wednesday: Central Campus (finish on Friday, if necessary)
  • Friday: East Campus

There may be a need to do deviate from the schedule depending on circumstances.
