Air Conditioner Policy in Greek Houses

Any student who has a medical condition that requires air conditioning in his/her room as part of their prescribed treatment must have a Medical Request for use of an Air Conditioner Form completed by the Primary Care Physician, Allergist, Pulmonologist, or Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist on file with the Office of Housing Services.

Students should have submitted this form prior to assignment so that they could be accommodated in an air-conditioned space by the house leadership. Forms submitted after assignment will be discussed by house leadership and alumni. All students living in an air conditioned space must fill out an Air Conditioning Policy and Contract. Any student with a Medical Request for use of an Air Conditioner Form on file who is not placed into an air conditioned space must fill out an Air Conditioning Waiver.

Air conditioning is permanently installed in 6 rooms of each house as selected by the alumni and the chapter leadership. There will be no installation fee charged directly to the student.

All air conditioners are owned and installed by Lehigh University hired staff and will remain in windows year round. Maintenance concerns regarding the air conditioning units are to be reported as a work order to Facilities Services. Air conditioner filters will be checked and changed as necessary over breaks.

Air conditioners are not to be removed or tampered with by the resident(s) under any circumstance. Unauthorized air conditioner units will be removed and the resident responsible will be fined.
