Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:
Yes

A brief description of the technology used:

Using the Building Automation System, many buildings on campus are regulated for occupied and unoccupied mode. In the occupied mode the temperature is kept within a range of 70 degrees to 75 degrees. The fans in the space run continuously and outdoor air is brought in (amount can vary depending on building need). In the unoccupied mode the temperature is kept within a range of 60 degrees to 85 degrees. The fans in the space run as needed and no outdoor air is brought in.
