Classes scheduled for the Arts and Sciences Building on Monday will be moved to other buildings because the building continues to be without heat.
When the schedule of relocated classes for Monday is finished, it will be posted at http://www.uakron.edu/info/closing.php. An e-mail will be sent to faculty, staff and students. In addition, the schedule will be posted in the Student Union, at the Arts and Sciences Building entrance and at Central-Hower.
Computer-based lab classes will resume on Monday in other buildings. The schedule for Monday will list the locations of these labs.
The work crew is reporting some progress as it seeks to find a pinhole leak in the high-temperature, high-pressure water line that supplies heat to the building. The work is challenging because the leak is evident only when the line is under its normal load of 400-degree water at 300 pounds of pressure. Plus, the pipe is heavily insulated — a pipe within a pipe — and it is buried 10 feet below the surface.
