Dear Campus Community,
Facilities Services will be conducting our annual inspection and maintenance of UCR’s steam utility distribution system at our Central Plant. The purpose of this shutdown is to ensure the continued reliable delivery of steam and hot water for sterilization and other laboratory processes in many campus buildings through this critical utility.
The shutdown will begin at midnight Saturday, June 15, 2019 lasting through Sunday, June 23, 2019.
During this time, there will be a reduction in services:
• Campus core buildings (see list below) will be without domestic hot water and steam.
• Commencement – Designated restrooms for ceremonies include:
All Hub restroom facilities will have hot water and attendants;
Rental executive restrooms will be available with warm water for all ceremonies at the northeast end of Pierce Lawn next to Webber Hall.
Watkins Hall (first floor) and University Lecture Hall will not have hot water after steam shutdown begins on Sunday, June 15.
• Housing Facilities will not be impacted.
Thank you for your patience as we continue our commitment to maintaining a safe and sustainable campus environment. If you have questions regarding this annual process, please call us at
(951) 827-4214 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
