What are the dates for the annual steam shutdown?

In order to perform necessary maintenance on the boilers, steam transmission systems and electrical distribution systems, Kent State University's Power Plant on the Kent Campus will be shut down beginning Sunday, May 13, at 12:01 a.m. The shutdown is expected to be completed Sunday, May 20, at 11:59 p.m.  


Due to work on the campus electrical system, the completion date may be delayed until Monday, May 21. As a result of the steam shutdown, most buildings located on campus will NOT have hot water to sinks and showers, etc., or heat or air conditioning.


Please address any questions about this project to Frank Renovich at 330-672-0775 or email frenovi2@kent.edu. Your assistance and understanding during this process is greatly appreciated.
