Stay warm this winter


January 9, 2015

As the temperatures continue to drop this week, we seek your help in keeping our campus warm and trouble-free with these cold weather tips:

USE REVOLVING DOORS
Please use the revolving doors whenever possible to keep warm air in the buildings and cold air out. Use of revolving doors conserves energy and keeps our buildings warmer than use of swing doors that lets heat and energy escape.

CLOSE WINDOWS AND DOORS
Before you leave each day, please make sure that all windows and doors are shut securely. This will help avoid problems such as freezing and broken pipes.

REPORT BROKEN WINDOWS OR DOORS
If you notice any door or window that cannot close properly, please report the location via one of these methods:
1.) Contact our Customer Service Center at 617-253-4948
2.) Visit Atlas and submit a Service Request
3.) Use the MIT Mobile app and select the “Bldg Services” icon
4.) Send a text message with the location and a photograph to txtdof@mit.edu
