East Campus Steam Shuts Off For the Last Time24 May 2019
Today the steam heating system for the east side of campus was turned off for the last time in Carleton’s history! It will be replaced next year with a new and more energy efficient geothermal hot water heating system. This is a monumental step towards our goal of a Carbon Free Carleton by 2050. Please join the Sustainability Office at 3:30pm Friday afternoon to celebrate with free ice cream on the Mini Bald Spot! Dairy free options will be available. In case of rain, location will be moved to the 1st Cassat lounge.
