Annual Morningside Campus Steam Shutdown May 16-17

May 07, 2024

The annual Morningside Campus Steam Shutdown is scheduled to begin at 10:00pm on Thursday, May 16, 2024.  Steam service will be restored to the Campus at approximately 11:59pm on Friday, May 17, 2024.  The shutdown impacts all buildings with steam service supplied by the Central Plant at Morningside.

This shutdown is necessary to facilitate needed repairs and maintenance to the campus steam system that cannot be performed during normal operations.  Maintenance activities will be performed in mechanical spaces and will not be visible to most staff and visitors. 

Please be aware that steam services in buildings – including heat, hot water, and humidification – will not be available during the steam shutdown.  Facilities and Operations will make every effort to maintain normal building temperatures during this time, recognizing that temperature and humidity fluctuations should be expected.  Please contact the Facilities Services Center immediately at 212-854-2222 if there are any unexpected issues or concerns.

Your support and assistance in helping us maintain our equipment in working order is greatly appreciated. We apologize for any inconvenience.
