NOTICE: The first floor of the Dental School Clinic Building will be closed to foot traffic from 7:00 AM on Saturday, December 1st until 5:00 PM on Sunday, December 2nd.  We will be stripping and waxing the terrazzo floors on the 1st floor of the Clinic Building , making the normal entrances inaccessible during this entire time.  All foot traffic will be redirected to the exterior stair entrance leading to the second floor.  If you must access the building during this time period, please look for the signs that will direct entrance to the building.

Then on Monday, December 3rd, beginning at 6:00 PM the domestic hot and cold water will be shut down on the 7th floor of the Clinical Sciences Research Building .  Also, there will be no medical air on the 7th floor.  These services will be restored by 9:00 PM on Monday.  Please do not attempt to use any water or medical air on the 7th floor during this outage.  Please open no faucets, flush no toilets and open no medical air valves on the 7th floor during this 3 hour period.   This reduces the chance of any problems developing once the services are restored.
