Feeling cold? Space heaters are expensive energy hogs and can be dangerous. UofL strongly discourages their use. If your work space is cold or drafty, please contact Work Control to report the problem and a room temperature adjustment will be conducted. You can expect occupied room temperatures to be maintained between 66 and 72 degrees F throughout the heating season. Everyone is encouraged to dress for those temperatures. Cozy sweaters are the winter’s “greenest” fashion statement.
