Graduate Student Staff Oportunities
Graduate student staff provide support for many services provided by the offices of student life and Campus Ministry. A number of opportunities exist for CUA graduate students. To learn more about these work opportunities and how to apply, visit http://careers.cua.edu/grads.

Central Heating Plant Shutdown and Air Conditioning Start-up
The Office of Facilities Maintenance and Operations announces that, as warm weather approaches, it will begin shutting down the central heating plant. This operation is tied to our weather patterns. 

The start-up of air conditioning on campus normally begins one to two weeks after the heating season ends, again depending on the weather patterns.

Once the cooling season has started, the University’s electrical consumption typically doubles. The campus community is encouraged to support conservation measures, especially during the summer. 

Some hints to help conserve energy over the summer:

  • Raise thermostat settings to 78 degrees.
  • Turn off air conditioning, especially window units, when not needed. This includes overnight and during vacations. 
  • Turn off all lights and computers when not in use.
  • Do not leave outside doors propped open.
  • Keep windows closed when air conditioner is in use.

For more information, contact the Facility Service Center at 202-319-5121.
