Preparing your Off-Campus Property for Extreme Cold Conditions!

 

The Office of Student Affairs takes this opportunity to remind students to be prepared for extreme cold Weather conditions:

 

Temperature Control:  Students should read the terms of their lease for any specific provisions regarding temperature control in the winter months and be sure to comply with the lease

 

In the absence of a specific lease provision, students should set the thermostat at a temperature that will be sure to keep the pipes from freezing.  This temperature will vary depending on the condition of your rental property and the temperature outside. 

 

We recommend setting the thermostat on at least 60 degrees to ensure that pipes do not freeze, however, this temperature could be lower for a newer, well insulated rental unit. Students should also keep in mind that long absences and low temperatures can lead to musty or moldy conditions.
