Westerlin experiences heating problems

Westerlin Hall is having heating problems after the boiler malfunctioned. A backup boiler is now in place and maintenance is planning to have the problem fixed by 6 p.m. and have heat by 10 p.m.
Christina Lorge-Grover, director of residential life, said the temperature in Westerlin could fall into the 50s, but she does not anticipate a significant change in temperature.
“The question is, is it going to be fixed to keep it at 70 degrees,” said Lorge-Grover. “It’s at the mercy of mother nature.”
Students are encouraged to stay in friends’ housing or rooms if need be. Visitation rules are suspended until the heating is fixed.
Lorge-Grover encourages students to report any future problems with heating or general maintenance in dorms by submitting a work order. Administration will send out updates when possible.
“We try to be as transparent with our students as possible,” she said. “That’s our goal.”
