Residential Hall Procedures
Anderson University Physical Plant has a policy for your protection and privacy. We will not enter the Residential Halls before 9:00 am each day, unless there is an emergency.
Upon entering the Residential Halls, males will loudly announce our presence and repeat before entering each sector or floor.
Before entering ANY room, we will knock three times and announce our presence.
After 9:00 am, we will proceed to work in order to meet the needs and demands of the university.
If you believe your request for service was not handled in a professional, courteous, and competent manner; please contact the Physical Plant Director or the Residential Living Director.
For Your Information
The Physical Plant transfers from the A/C system to the heating system in October and from the heating system to the A/C system on April 1 each year. Most of the buildings are not designed to run both systems at the same time. All temperatures are monitored by our energy management system for energy efficiency.
