Building Reactivation

In late March, Facilities Operations reduced the operation of certain building systems and services to save energy, reduce costs and focus limited essential staff resources to the most effective locations.

Buildings will be reactivated systematically. Learn more about building systems that will need to be returned to operating conditions. 

Once buildings are reactivated and the unit's Return to Campus Plan Summary & Checklist is approved, units can begin returning to their spaces. 

Reactivation Schedule

Find the planned building reactivation dates, which should be incorporated into your department's Return to Campus Plans. For some buildings, the dates are TBD and will be based on school or unit plans. In some instances, only portions of buildings have been cleared for occupancy. Student residences, which are projected to open for student access in August 2020, are not included in this listing.

Building Operating Conditions

Buildings are not designed to go dormant, and before occupancy by faculty, staff and students, each building’s systems and services will need to be returned to its standard operating conditions. This will involve at a minimum:

  • Flushing plumbing (domestic water) systems to remove stagnant water that is not suitable for consumption and returning potable chlorinated water to the building with testing/verification
  • Returning the building’s HVAC system to normal operating conditions and schedule, including replacement of filters, performance of necessary preventative maintenance, and a flush of the building’s air systems
  • Resumption of regular custodial services, including new COVID-19-specific cleaning protocols
  • Installation of COVID-19 signage to reinforce the core responsibilities for reoccupying campus
