Heat and Air Conditioning

Friel and Rideau: individual HVAC systems, you can change between heat and AC as you (and any roommates) desire.

Leblanc, Marchand, Stanton, Thompson: No AC available. Heating is building-wide and is turned on on specific dates to coincide with seasonal weather changes.

90U, Annex, Henderson, Hyman Soloway, Mann: The transition between air conditioning and heat is building wide and is turned on on specific dates to coincide with seasonal weather changes. Broadly, heat is typically turned on sometime in October, and AC is typically turned on sometime in May.

To adjust the temperature in your unit, set the thermostat to the desired temperature and turn the fan to “auto”.

If your room is too hot and the air conditioning has not been turned on yet, we suggest that you open your window to allow fresh air to come in. If you turn the fan to "high", the unit will blow hot air and warm your room even more.
