Quick Hits: Parking, Lofts, and Air Conditioners

Air Conditioners

Just a reminder that if you are looking to have an air conditioner in your room, the deadline for approval is August 1st.  You can find the form here.  You need a letter from your physician proving that you have a valid excuse to need one, such as allergies, asthma, or many other medical problems.  Air conditioners must be between 6,000 and 8,000 BTU, and have an EEF rating of 8.5 or higher.  Your account will be charged $115 for the added expense of electricity for your room.

Trust me, if your dorm is not air conditioned, and you can get approval to have one, it is worth it.  While this summer may be relatively cool for the area, the Fall could prove to be quite warm.  Also, the Spring can sometimes warm up pretty quickly, so always good to have a cool place to go home to.


Also, for those of you looking to build a loft in your room, there’s a form for that also.  You can find it here.  A plan of your loft’s construction must be approved by the Director of Residence Life, then be inspected by Physical Plant upon completion.  The form must be turned in, and then you’re good to go.

The big thing to remember with lofts is that the wood must be coated or dipped with a flame retardant, and that the loft has to be no more than 38 inches off the ceiling.  Full requirements are included in the provided link.


If you’re bringing a car to campus and are an upperclassmen, remember to use the Park Admin system to purchase your parking pass for the 09-10 school year.  The price is the same as always, at $45, and is good through the end of the Spring semester of 2010.

Freshmen have a lot of restrictions to fight through to get a parking pass now, and have already jumped through all the hoops to get one by now.  You can’t get a freshman parking pass through the Park Admin system, so contact CPS if you’re curious to see if you qualify and if there are any passes still available.
