Take Note

DC Heating System Maintenance
The DC’s heating system is undergoing a much needed boiler replacement cycle during the months of May, June, and July. This is a major project requiring removal and replacement of large and complex mechanical systems.

  • During this period, as the heating system boilers are replaced, the building interior will be cooler than normal on days following cooler nighttime temperatures. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please bring something warm to wear.
  • You may notice small room-like structures in the halls on each floor of the DC. These temporary enclosures will help reduce the construction noise and dust.
  • Questions? email Rob Mills in DC Facilities.

The Groundworks Orientation is now on Canvas. This course introduces you to the resources of the Digital Media Commons. Upon completing the modules you will create an account, enabling you to reserve the Multimedia Rooms and the Recording Booth.
