Because the College of Arts and Sciences Building is without heat, all classes scheduled in that building for Tuesday will be held in another location.
A schedule with each class's new location is at http://www.uakron.edu/info/docs/CASTuesdayClassesFINAL.pdf. This information will also be posted on the doors of the Arts and Sciences Building and in the Student Union. University personnel will be on hand outside of the Arts and Sciences Building to assist students on Tuesday.
The schedule uses abbreviations for campus buildings. A list of building abbreviations is here. A campus map is here.
To try to keep heat in the Arts and Sciences Building, access to the building will be restricted on Tuesday. As a result, staff and contract professionals who work in the Arts and Sciences building should report to work as instructed by their supervisors. Faculty and teaching assistants will be permitted access to the building to retrieve their lecture notes or any other class materials needed to teach their classes.
Because only a skeleton staff will answer phones for departments located in the building, services may be somewhat limited; however, department representatives will be available to students in the conference room of Institutional Research on the fifth floor of Leigh Hall.
The heat to the Arts and Sciences Building was cut off when the steam line that supplies heat to it sprung a leak this afternoon. Repair crews will work as quickly as possible to assess damage to the line once the heat dissipates in the tunnel where the line is. By mid-day tomorrow, we will be able to advise you on how long the repairs should take, when the building might reopen and what the interim arrangements will be to ensure continued service to our students.
Updates will be available by calling 330-972-SNOW or 330-972-6238 (TDD/Voice). Please check your University e-mail account regularly for updates as well.
We appreciate your understanding and patience, and we will keep you informed about this situation in the days ahead.
