There is currently no heat, hot water, nor cooking gas service in the Law School and McKeon Hall because of gas main repairs that required gas to be shut off to the building. A repair crew has been on site since early Friday morning, and the University anticipates repairs should be completed by Friday evening. Heat, hot water, and cooking gas service may resume Friday evening, but more likely will not be available until Saturday, Feb. 27.
There is no danger to the students, faculty and staff in the Law School and McKeon Hall. Temperatures inside the building will remain comfortable for the next 24 hours at least—the Law School-McKeon Hall complex is a modern, well-insulated building—but residents are asked not to open windows nor hold exterior doors open unnecessarily to avoid more rapid loss of heat. Should repairs take much longer than anticipated, the University has contingency plans to temporarily move classes and student residents to other buildings.
Residents of McKeon Hall who need a hot shower may use the Fitness Center Locker rooms on the 2nd floor of McMahon Hall: Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Dining services in the building will operate on their normal schedules through this evening.
All events and meetings planned at the Law School for Friday and Saturday, Feb. 26 and 27, will take place as scheduled.
Faculty, students, and staff can call either of the following numbers for the latest updates:
