Students and Parents
All University housing that contains asbestos surfacing
(ceiling) materials is inspected on an annual basis
by REHS staff. Areas of damage are noted, and repairs
are made by licensed asbestos abatement contractors
in accordance with state and federal regulations prior
to occupancy by students and residents of these facilities.
At the beginning
of the fall semester, students residing in dormitories
that contain asbestos surfacing materials receive notification
letters advising them of the presence of asbestos in
their building. These letters identify activities they
must avoid to prevent damage to the ceiling, and request
that they report damage to their respective Housing department immediately.
