What do you do when you feel cold in your work space? During the cooler part of year, most campus spaces are heated to 70°F during building-occupied hours. However, because spaces at MSU vary greatly in age, construction and function, exceptions will occur. If your space is consistently below 70°F, your first step is to call MSU Infrastructure Planning and Facilities at (517) 353-1760 to determine the source of the problem.

What if your work space temperature is adequate but you're still feeling cold? Comfortable work conditions are important but so is energy efficiency and safety. A 1500-watt portable space heater is usually not an option because MSU policy limits their use to approved spaces.
