To all faculty, staff and graduate students:

This is a bit of advance notice that during the holiday break the outside doors to BMH/LHS/LHN/AHS Expansion building will be locked.  UW Police Services will start locking doors at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 22nd, 2017 and will reopen them for 7:30 a.m. on January 2nd, 2018.

The heat will be turned down during this period and will be on night settings and therefore it will be much cooler in the building.

If there is some reason that you need to enter the building over the holidays, you may sign out a key from the UW Police. Signing out a key requires some identification, as well as the agreement to relock the building when you leave.  If you see any suspicious activity in the building please call UW Police and stay in your office.  They will come to you.  All alarm systems will be functional.  As UW Police notes, this is a vulnerable time for the campus and valuables should not be left unsecured.  UW Police offers the use of their safe for the storage of money and other valuables.

Anyone working in a lab during shutdown must have supervisor and departmental approval and adhere to the Working Alone Guidelines posted on the Safety Office website.

In addition, the AHS Computing Office has recommended that you turn off your computer, printer and other peripherals, and unplug units from the wall before you leave for the holidays.  This is not only the environmentally friendly thing to do but it will make it immune to power surges, network viruses, and hackers.

Happy Holidays,
