When do halls change from heating to cooling and back?

Kansas weather often changes in just a few minutes. For that reason, we don't keep strict dates for our changeover from heating to cooling, or cooling to heating.

System changeover is based on long-range weather forecasts. If the forecast shows temperatures below 55 degrees for three days or more, building heating systems are activated.

 

Most of our larger buildings are heated and cooled with water loop line systems. Room fans blow across pipes filled with hot water during cold weather or filled with cold water during hot weather. This is economical and works well. We appreciate your patience for the few weeks each year when we're between seasons.

Several of our buildings have window air-conditioning units installed by Student Housing. Residents in the Stouffer Place Apartments provide their own window air-conditioning units. If you have problems with your heating or air conditioning, get a maintenance report form from the front desk and report the problem to maintenance.
