News and Events
Monthly Power Outages
Each month there is an interruption in the electrical power to Higgins Hall and Campion Hall due to BC's Electrical Shop testing the emergency generators. This interruption causes a momentary (2-8 seconds) lack of power, so if your laboratory has sensitive equipment or instruments plugged into the emergency circuits please take necessary precautions.
Business Services assists the tenants of Higgins Hall with employment, procurement, travel, payroll related matters, and sponsored research. The Business Services unit serves as the primary liaison with Purchasing, Accounts Payable, the Office of Sponsored Programs, and the Human Resources Service Center.
Operations handles the issues pertaining to the building including emergency and routine work order requests, environmental health and safety concerns, security issues, renovations, and new equipment installations.
