Temperature in campus buildings to be lowered to save energy during winter break

The following is a guest post from Facilities and Campus Services:

To: Reynolda Campus Faculty and Staff:

In an effort to conserve energy over the winter holiday period, the Facilities & Campus Services Department will be implementing the annual temperature setback program for our academic and administrative buildings starting the night of Friday, December 21, and ending the morning of Tuesday, January 2.

The setback program will maintain building temperatures at no less than 55 degrees (F) during the holiday period.  Beginning at 2 a.m. on January 2, the heating systems will gradually return the buildings to comfortable conditions. We intend for all buildings to be at 70 degrees (F) by the time employees arrive at work. Facilities technicians will arrive early on that date to ensure building heating systems have reactivated as scheduled. A similar program is being conducted in the unoccupied areas of our residence halls.

This program generates significant cost savings through reduced energy consumption, and over the last nine years has avoided over $360,000 in energy costs.

Staff or faculty who intend to visit or work on campus during the holiday period are advised to wear appropriate clothing and consider bringing a light jacket or sweater to work.

For departments that would like an exemption or have received exemptions in the past, please contact Doug Ecklund at and state your exemption needs as soon as possible.

Thank you for supporting this effort to save energy during the holiday period.

Wake Forest's Reynolda Campus to be on regular schedule Wednesday, Dec. 12

This announcement was emailed to students, faculty and staff on Dec. 11 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

Wake Forest University’s Reynolda Campus will be open and will operate on its regular schedule Wednesday, Dec. 12.  This includes Wake Downtown.

Travel conditions vary in the Triad, including Winston-Salem, so all at Wake Forest are encouraged to be cautious. We urge everyone to prioritize safety and make their own decisions regarding their personal safety.

University shuttle service will be provided Wednesday.  There are some changes in scheduling on Wednesday.

–Black and Gold Line:  The first departure time from campus will be at 8:20 a.m.  If you do not have an exam at 9 a.m. Wednesday, it is requested that you wait for the 9:20 a.m. departure shuttle for a ride to campus.

–Wake Downtown: Service will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will operate on a 30-minute loop throughout the day.  Shuttles will depart in front of Benson University Center at the bottom of the hour (xx:30) and depart Wake Downtown at the top of the hour (xx:00).

–The Gray Day Line, the Gray Night Line and the OnCall Service will not operate on Wednesday.  In addition, there will be no Brookwood service on Wednesday due to the neighborhood’s road conditions.  If you drive from that area, please park in the First Assembly of God Church parking lot, off Polo Road and Long Drive.

To assist in snow removal operations on campus, the University is requesting that students with a vehicle parked in any faculty/staff parking lot or along campus roads relocate their vehicle to a general parking lot this afternoon (Tuesday) by 6 p.m.

Freshman and sophomore students with a vehicle already parked on campus are approved to park in general lots for the rest of the week.

Since there is no Gray Line service on Wednesday, students who have a satellite parking permit are authorized to park in the First Assembly of God Church parking lot off Polo Road and Long Drive on Wednesday.

Please continue to check the Wake Alert website at for any other announcements that may be made.
