The KU Energy Office adjusts building heating and cooling schedules to maintain seasonal temperature set-points and comfortable levels. KU building temperatures are carefully scheduled for occupied and unoccupied times to achieve the highest levels of comfort and energy efficiency.

Facilities Services program thermostats based on the seasonal temperature set-points which are 69oF in the winter and 76oF in the summer. During unoccupied hours, temperature will be set back to 55oF in the winter and 85oF in the summer.

Building Managers should email energy@ku.edu or fill out the form below to request adjustments to the schedules for special events or in order to save energy during unoccupied hours. Please submit weekday schedule requests 24 hours in advance and weekend schedule requests by Friday at 8am.
