St Lucia campus partial air conditioning shutdowns

15 Aug 2019

As part of an energy saving initiative, there will be a partial shutdown of air conditioning to selected part of the buildings listed in this document (PDF, 691 KB), on the St Lucia campus over the Ekka Holiday (14 August) and Queen’s Birthday (7 October) public holidays.


  • Start: Monday 7 October 2019
  • Finish: Monday 7 October 2019

Affected areas

  • The areas selected for the shutdown are generally offices and teaching spaces. 
  • Rooms with air conditioning which are normally set to run 24/7 are exempt from holiday scheduling and will continue to run as normal.
  • Teaching rooms managed through Syllabus Plus will also be unaffected by the partial shutdown. 
  • If you plan to come to work on either Wednesday 14 August or Monday 7 October, then please familiarise yourself beforehand with the location of the after-hours buttons for your work area.  
  • If an office or teaching space has an after-hours button then, where possible, the air conditioning has been scheduled off, but you can turn it on for successive 2 hour periods by pressing the button.


  • If there are any problems with air conditioning during these public holidays please contact PF Assist on 336 52222 in the first instance or Security on 336 51234.  There will be staff on standby to deal with scheduling issues or breakdowns.
  • If you foresee problems with the scheduling proposed for your work area, please email Matthew Leditschke at .

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding during this time.
