Air Conditioning relief on the way

The University of Windsor has identified the source of the lack of air conditioning in some campus buildings and is working on a repair. It is expected to be restored within approximately 24 hours, and the weather forecast indicates that Mother Nature will bring her own relief on Thursday.

About half of the campus is affected due to the structure of the underground water chiller pipes. Looking at the campus map, if a line was extended parallel to Fanchette Street through the middle of campus west to Huron Church, to the north of that line towards the river is currently hot and to the south is cool.

Cool Buildings:
Human Kinetics, Lebel, Alumni Hall, Clark residences, Music, Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation, Odette Business School, Erie Hall, Lambton Tower, the south area of Essex Hall, Vanier Hall, MacDonald Hall and some areas of the Biology building.
