  • Turn off electronic equipment such as computers, monitors, speakers and printers.
  • Consider emptying and defrosting mini-refrigerators so they can be unplugged with the door left ajar during the break.
  • Unplug fans, chargers, radios and appliances such as coffeemakers.
  • Close blinds and tilt the slats upward.
  • Turn off all lights when you leave.

Keep in mind that some areas on campus may be cooler than usual during the break due to reduced heating.
