Kilmer: There is an ongoing problem with an overflowing toilet in the 2nd floor men's restroom. Facilities is investigating to determine if it is mechanical or vandalism; a modular classroom is being constructed near the library. Modular classrooms are being constructed in many campus locations with the goal to lessen intercampus travel during the Route 18 construction.

Annex: Frequently of late, staff can't find spaces in the Annex parking lot. The lot is listed as a common lot on Parking's website and paper maps, the actual lot sign there indicates it is for Library Use Only.

Alexander: While the new HVAC system is being installed small leaks are anticipated on the 3rd floor. The collection has been covered with plastic for protection.
