Updated 2/27: The steam downtime originally scheduled for this Saturday, March 2, has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 9 because the necessary parts for steam repair have been delayed in transit by the Texas/Oklahoma blizzard.

Planning for experiments next Saturday (March 9)? Be on the alert that many of the Marquam campus buildings north of Sam Jackson Parkway, including Richard Jones, Mac Hall, the Vollum, the MRB, and the BRB, will be affected by a steam shutdown from 8:00 a.m. to 10 p.m.. This means that building temperatures could be affected–as well as hot water and sterilization equipment, depending on your location.
