Construction Error Blocks Residence Hall Heat
By Lizzie Breyer
Students waking up on North
Campus were greeted with cold showers
Tuesday after a construction error
knocked out hot water and heat to many
residence hall rooms.
Richard Marks, area director for the
Olde Campus Upper Quad, sent an e
mail to all students living in his area
Tuesday afternoon telling them about
the situation, which is related to North
Crews are working along Raleigh
Street to replace the steam line that pro
vides hot water to many North Campus
residence halls. “A lot of this is due to
the construction on North Campus,”
Marks said. “It’s not anything intention
al; it’s just due to the construction.”
Marks said he wasn’t sure of the exact
nature of the construction error. But he
said workers were trying to restore hot
water and heat as quickly as possible.
“We’re just asking the residents to bear
with us and be patient,” Marks said.
He said the error was not limited to
the residence halls immediately sur
rounding the construction. “The whole
northern region was affected,” he said.
“It wasn’t just the upper quad.”
Rebecca Casey, assistant director of
housing and residential education, said
she was unaware of the lack of heat and
hot water as of 4 p.m Tuesday.
Casey said she would gather infor
mation and address student concerns
once she became aware of the situation.
Anna Carlton, a sophomore who
lives in Ruffin Residence Hall, said she
was distressed about the lack of heat in
her room. “My room has no heat, and I
refuse to sleep there,” she said. “It’s cold,
and my roommate is whining.”
Freshman Matt Zachek, a resident of
Mangum Residence Hall, said he was
particularly upset the error was a result
of the construction, which he said
already is inconvenient.
“I got in the shower, and normally it
ulljp Sally (Tar MM
heats up pretty fast, but it was freezing -
I jumped in, felt it and jumped right
back out,” Zachek said. “I got the e-mail
about how they made a mistake, and it
kind of pissed me off.”
Marks said he hopes this kind of
problem will not occur again but he said
the only solution is to keep students
aware and ask them to be patient.
“We don’t know what will happen in
the future,” he said. “We didn’t expect to
have this problem now.
“We can try to prepare the students
by letting them know.”
