We can help you with temperature adjustments and security access when you need to be in a campus building outside of normal business hours. When your event or work occurs after-hours, or at times that differ from the space’s regularly scheduled use, our staff can help adjust temperature settings and door lock schedules.


To request heating or cooling for your event:

  • Email cscs@princeton.edu.
  • Please include the specific campus location and time range for temperature adjustments.

To request building access outside normal hours for you and/or your event guests:

  • For security reasons, ONLY appointed building access coordinators (BACs) can request after-hours access to a building. Please contact the building access coordinator of the location you need to access and ask them to send a building unlock request to Facilities.
  • Please contact the BAC early enough to provide both them and Facilities time to activate the request. 

To report problems with heating, cooling or space access during normal working hours:

  • Please contact the Facilities Customer Service Center, 609-258-8000


There is no cost to you for adjusting the thermostat or opening a building or a room for your event.
