Physical Plant

Changes to Campus Buildings

As a result of remote learning, students moving to their permanent address and employees working from home, and in an effort to reduce expenses, beginning April 1st Physical Plant is implementing operating changes to all campus buildings.

  • HVAC systems will be shut off.  With the mild temperatures expected in the coming weeks this should not pose a problem.  If climate conditions change suddenly, the HVAC system can be turned on. HVAC will remain in Flynn Hall and campus dining in Fenwick.
  • Contract cleaning in all buildings will be suspended.  Recycling can be allowed to accumulate. A “Carry In, Carry Out” policy will be initiated for all compostable items.
  • Trash service provided by Rumpke will be curtailed.  Dumpster service at Fenwick, Flynn and Alumni Hall will remain.
  • Physical Plant staff will be on site to respond to service requests.  Please call 513-745-3151 or submit an email to
  • Daily building inspections will be conducted by Physical Plant personnel
  • The electrical outage scheduled for Good Friday April 10th has been canceled.
