College energy guidelines direct that the College attempt, within limitations of the physical plant, to maintain a temperature of approximately 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the heating season.

- Due to the extremely low temperatures that can occur during the winter months, residents are expected to report any heating concerns (whether too hot or too cold) immediately to the Office of Residential Life.
- The heating system in the residence halls does not include thermostats in every room. Because the temperature cannot be adjusted without affecting many rooms within a building, some rooms will be cooler or warmer than others.
Students should note that open windows can result in the freezing of pipes and students are responsible for the damage that results if this occurs. For more information, please go to the Heating Information web page.
