2019 Morningside Campus Annual Steam Shutdown

May 14, 2019

The 2019 Annual Morningside Campus Steam Shutdown is scheduled to begin on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. with service restored at approximately 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2019 to all campus buildings except for those on the East Campus steam service.

The buildings on the East Campus steam service include: East Campus, Casa Italiana, Faculty House, International Affairs Building, Jerome Greene Annex, Jerome Greene Hall (Law School), President’s House, Wien Hall, William & June Warren Hall, and William C. Warren Hall.  Service to these buildings will not be restored until approximately 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2019 in order to perform additional investigative work on the steam feeder located under Amsterdam Avenue. 

This shutdown is necessary to facilitate needed repairs and maintenance to the campus steam system that cannot be performed during normal operations.  Maintenance activities will be performed in mechanical spaces and will not be visible to most staff and visitors.

Please be aware that heating services in academic buildings – including heat, hot water and humidification – will not be available during the steam shutdown. Air conditioning will operate as normal except in the Northwest Corner Building (see additional information below). Facilities and Operations will make every effort to maintain normal building temperatures during this time. Please contact the Facilities Services Center immediately at x4-2222 if there are any unexpected issues or concerns.

Additional Maintenance Work:

Northwest Corner Science Building Fume Hood Shutdown – A comprehensive maintenance of the building’s central fume hood exhaust system will be performed on Friday, May 24, 2019 starting at 7:00 a.m. and ending at 7:00 p.m. Fume hoods will be unavailable for use during this time and until recertification occurs.

Your support and assistance in helping us maintain our equipment in working order is greatly appreciated. We apologize for any inconvenience.
