Temperature in the Bennett Library

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Why is it so hot on the 2nd floor of the library?? I am here late right now (Nov.25 1:35 am) and I'm cooking in my seat with a T-shirt on and with both the windows open right next to me.
Can we please turn the heat down?
W.A.C.Bennett (SFU Burnaby)

A: Thank you for your feedback,
I've submitted a request to our HVAC department to investigate and remedy the over heating problem on the 2nd floor.
