Hot on the heels of Housing entering rooms in EC, Harmony, Shapiro and 47 Claremont, Carman residents just received an email on “the intermittent heating concerns.”  According to Carman dwellers, heating noises and inconsistent temperature have been problems for weeks now.  The long and short of the email is that Facilities will “conduct an inspection of each individual fan coil unit” which means entering individual rooms.  Be wise, and put things in drawers. Full email below.
