Facilities Management and Planning wishes to thank the campus community for its patience as we investigated solutions to allow for the reopening Dunton Tower.

The building was closed last week due to a failure in the main air supply fan, which prevented the university from meeting its COVID-19 safety measures for our faculty, staff and students. It remains closed this week.

A rental fan will arrive on campus tomorrow and will be installed later this week, with an expected reopening of Dunton Tower on Sept. 27. A crane will be on site to install the fan on the roof of the building and this will require a section of Library Road near Dunton Tower to be closed on Friday, Sept. 24. All safety precautions will be in place in the area.

An update will be provided to the community as new information becomes available.
