Heating & Cooling Tips
Goucher College is highly committed to a sustainable and responsible use of energy and resources. We help to achieve these goals through working with our campus partners to ensure that our mutual goals are met.
One of the ways we help to achieve the goal of being sustainable and responsible in our energy use is through controlling the temperatures of our spaces with a centralized building automation system. This allows us to maintain our spaces between 70 – 76 degrees Fahrenheit.
Please choose your residence hall below for instructions on controlling the temperature of your dorm room.

Q. What can I do if I think I have a problem with my space’s temperature?
