Tommy's Tips


  • Use natural light rather than electrical light in your office when possible.
  • Turn off lights when you leave a room or when you notice them on in an unoccupied space.
  • If nightlights in hallways are sufficient, leave the main bank turned off.


  • Dress in layers to stay comfortable.
  • Adjust room temperature by adjusting your radiator valve, not by opening the window.  If there is a heating issue in your area, please contact Facility Operations.


  • Always turn off computers at the end of the workday.
  • Set your monitor to power off when your computer is idle.
  • Unplug your electronic equipment when you leave for a weekend or break.  Electronics use power even when they are off!
  • Turn off the TV when you leave your dorm room.

University Vehicles

  • If you drive a University vehicle, don't leave the engine running when parked.
