Due to the extended heat wave affecting the WSU Pullman campus,
Facilities Services staff are implementing additional measures to protect
critical research and technology spaces. Air conditioning will be turned off
in more than a dozen buildings across the Pullman campus. These actions, while
necessary, could cause some locations to become extraordinarily warm today.
Cooling will be shut off in the following buildings:
Todd Hall/Todd Addition
Holland Library/Holland Addition
Cleveland Hall/Cleveland Addition
Owen Science Library
Smith Center for Undergraduate Education (SCUE)
While these spaces could become quite warm, the facilities are expected
to operate on a normal schedule.
Students using these buildings should determine if their personal comfort
and safety will allow them to be productive in these locations. Students should communicate with their instructors regarding course expectations if they believe
they cannot attend class.
Most student spaces including the Compton Union Building (CUB) and Student
Recreation Center will be available throughout the day to serve student needs.
The CUB will remain open until 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
Employees concerned about rising building temperatures should consult with
their supervisors regarding work and/or leave options. Refer to the
Inclement Weather information on the Human Resource Services (HRS) website
for additional details. Contact your HRS Service Team Member or firstname.lastname@example.org
