Cooling will be turned off in all other buildings on the university’s chilled water system. Laboratories, offices, classrooms not holding finals, dining halls and kitchens are affected, as are residences Jack McDonald Hall, Munger Graduate Residence and Schwab Residential Center. Other dormitories don’t have cooled water and thus are not affected. Building managers will be contacted by their zone or facilities operations managers to provide further information.
Buildings where cooling is turned off will rapidly become much warmer than normal this afternoon and evening. Managers should encourage precautionary measures and have discussions with employees about alternate work arrangements if needed due to the temperature in their location.
The university continues to appreciate the campus community's patience with this curtailment. This is a dynamic situation that may continue through tonight and into tomorrow. Updates will be posted on emergency.stanford.edu on Tuesday evening and whenever there is further information.
