Add New Suggestion
(Jan 29/14) Hello,
I frequently study at the HSL and have noticed that the Silent Study Area gets cold that I see some students wearing their jacket to study. With the increasing lower temperature outside, my hands and body are still cold at the end of the day when I leave from the library. Is it possible to perhaps turn up the heat as sometimes its hard to concentrate due to the area being a bit cold.
Thanks for taking the time to contact us about your concern. You are correct; there are several areas of the Health Sciences Library that have been uncomfortably cold this winter. We have contacted engineering services, but there is little they can do. The age and inefficiencies in the building make it difficult to regulate the temperatures, especially during extreme weather conditions outside. Regulating the temperature in patient areas is a higher priority. I am hoping the worst weather is behind us. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to discuss this in more detail
