As a result of work taking place on College Avenue, which includes water line replacement, the City of Bexley will turn off water to parts of campus tomorrow, Thursday, May 31, from 7 am to noon. While not all buildings on campus will lose water, the majority of campus will lose air conditioning because the chiller plant will not have water to chill and pump out to campus air conditioning units. Below is a list of buildings and how they will be affected.

In the following buildings, water will be on, but there will be no air conditioning:


  • Battelle Hall (with the exception of the nursing suite and computer labs)
  • Campus Center (The kitchen will have steam.)
  • Center for Health and Wellness (air conditioning will be supplied by window units)
  • Cotterman Hall 
  • Library, including The Schumacher Gallery
  • Lohman Hall
  • Renner Hall (air conditioning will be supplied by window units)
  • Schaaf Hall
  • Yochum Hall 

There will be no water or air conditioning in the following buildings:

  • The Capital Center
  • Chilled Water Plant
  • Conservatory of Music 
  • Huber-Spielman Hall
  • Loy Gymnasium
  • Ruff Memorial Learning Center
  • Saylor-Ackermann Hall (with the exception of air conditioning in the ROTC classroom and Saylor-Ackermann lounge units)
  • Steam Plant
  • Troutman Hall

Water will be off, but air conditioning will be on in the Office of Facilities Management. 

The following buildings will not be affected:
  • Admission and Welcome Center
  • Alumni House
  • Capital Commons
  • Capital University Apartments
  • College Avenue Residence Hall
  • Honors House
  • Kerns Religious Life Center
  • Public Safety Office
  • Sheridan Avenue Student Housing

We're making good progress on some other ongoing campus construction projects, and we're about to kick off a few new ones. Here are some updates that might be of interest:
  • The Huber-Spielman hall roof replacement is moving quickly and will be finished within the next few weeks, weather-permitting.
  • The Schaaf Hall hot water tank replacement is nearing completion. Crews started up the water this week and are testing the temperatures and re-insulating the pipes.
  • Lohman Complex, Capital’s largest student living space, will be improved by renovations to its lounges. New finishes and furniture will be added for studying, computing and lounging on the first and third floors. The basement lounge will improved with the addition of a gaming area and a small workout space. Work will begin in early June and will be complete in time for students' return this fall. 
  • The Harry C. Moores Campus Center grease interceptor installation will kick off Monday, June 18. Timing of the project, which will improve plumbing and substantially reduce backup of water in the basement, is being determined in close coordination with the Bookstore, Dining Services and important events.
