Asbestos

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.
