EMU students feel the chill with university heating system possibly on the fritz
Eastern Michigan University junior Aris Yancey went three weeks without heat in her dorm room because of a dysfunctional heating system, the Eastern Echo reports.
“My room was 59 degrees. I have never paid $5,000 in the state of Michigan for a small room, a suite-mate and no heat," Yancey told the Echo. "I could see my breath in my room.”
Yancey was issued a space heater as a temporary solution.
But other residents complain that EMU is overcompensating for the cold and turning the heat too high.
“The heat seems to be really sporadic because sometimes I will return to my room and it will be too hot while other times it feels like it is not on at all, even with my window closed,” EMU sophomore Brooke O’Neil told the Echo.
A facilities director told the Echo the glitches were normal.
