Campus Building Temperature Initiative

In the spirit of environmental and economic responsibility, the Revised Campus Building Temperature Initiative has the overall objective of creating savings in carbon emissions as well as dollars by modifying the average building temperatures across the campus. This initiative contemplates raising the temperature target set points in campus buildings by a few degrees during cooling season in those areas with air conditioning and lowering the set points by a few degrees in heating season. The program will have three separate components:

  • Work/school day temperatures
  • Evening and weekend temperatures
  • Vacation temperatures
