This is in line with the official UEA guidelines. HSE guidelines suggests the minimum temperature in a workplace should normally be at least 16 degrees Celsius.
We also endeavour to provide heating to our residential buildings between 19 and 21 degrees centigrade for a sustained period during any 24 hours.
If you require heating to be on outside of these times due to teaching, events or changing working patterns, please contact the Estates Helpdesk.

When you contact the Helpdesk with an issue about heating you can expect a maintenance colleague to carry out an initial check. If they find nothing obviously wrong they will leave a temperature recording device in the location for a duration of a few days.
The findings will be investigated, and if the temperatures are not in line with the guidelines for maintaining between 19 and 21 degrees, additional temporary heating will be provided to you while further works are carried out.
It is important not to move the Data Logger once it is in place as it is very sensitive. If you touch the Data Logger you will drastically affect the accuracy of the results and may mean we are not able to resolve your issue for you.
