3. AVOID BURST PIPES: KEEP WINDOWS CLOSED AND LOCKED.

UVM uses steam to heat our residence halls. Heating pipes can freeze quickly if you leave a window even just slightly open.

  • When frozen pipes thaw, they may burst and cause a flood in your room and the rooms around you.
  • Keeping your windows closed and latched securely can help prevent this.
  • If a flood occurs because you left a window open, you may be billed for repair and cleanup charges.

4. NOT RETURNING TO UVM?

Please email us right away at reslife@uvm.edu so we can process your checkout. We'll miss you!
