University to place stops in VCW windows after student’s fall
Following Michelle Konkoly’s (COL ’14) fall from the Y wing of the fifth floor of Village C West, the University will begin placing stops in the windows to limit how far they open.
In an email to residents of VCW, Patrick Killilee, executive director of Campus Housing, wrote that the work will begin tomorrow in the upper floors of the Y wing, the location from which Konkoly fell.
Here is the full text of Killilee’s email:
Beginning at 9 am on Thursday, January 20, 2011 University Facilities staff will begin placing stops in windows that substantially limit the amount any window may be opened. Work will begin on the upper floors of the Y Wing and progress throughout the building. Work will take place between 9 am and 3 pm on weekdays. Work will continue through January 31, 2011. This project will require Facilities staff to access your room to complete the work. We are not able to let you know what day or time staff will be coming to your room. If you have any questions, please contact Work Management, Harbin B24 at (202) 687-3432.
