Shutdown Notices and Advisories

The following notices report emergency and urgent shutdowns on CMU's campus, as well as changes and updates concerning campus facilities and infrastructure. 

You can follow these updates on Twitter at @CMU_FMSAnnounce or sign up to receive facilities notices via email.

Join a Facilities Email List

Facilities Management Services aims to keep the CMU community aware of campus structural impediments and repairs in a timely manner. Updates are regularly added to this webpage, posted to our @CMU_FMSAnnounce Twitter account, and emailed to designated Facility Coordinators and any other campus individuals who request them. To receive email about planned, urgent and emergency campus building information, subscribe to the facilities mailing lists covering the building or area important to you.

To subscribe to a facilities email list:

  1. Go to the Andrew Mailman Mailing Lists webpage to browse available email distribution lists. You may need to sign in with your Andrew user ID.

  2. Scroll to list names starting with “fms-“.

    • Facilities Managment Services list names begin with “fms-“, followed by the name of the building or area of interest covered by that particular list. You may subscribe to more than one list. An email sent to multiple lists will only send once to a specific email (no duplicate emails). If you are on multiple lists, be sure to use the same email address for all.

    • The “fms-shutdown” list is for subscribers who want to know what is happening across all areas of the campus. Members of this list receive almost all notices sent by the facilities team, which can sometimes be several emails a day. If you are only interested in one or two areas, you may not want to subscribe to the comprehensive “fms-shutdown” list. 

    • The “fmsfcc-all” is a mailing list specifically for designated Facility Coordinators on campus. Generally, only Facility Coordinators should subscribe to this list.

  3. Select the list you would like to join. Click the button at the bottom of the page that says “Subscribe as [youremail@CMU]”. If you do not see the subscribe button that includes your email address, log in via WebISO.

More information on how to subscribe to Andrew Mailman lists can be found here. To unsubscribe from a list, scroll down on the individual list page to the Subscribers section and follow the instructions there.

Please note that all facilities email lists are for sending email notices only. Subscribers cannot post to the lists. If you have a question about a notice sent to you, contact the person listed at the end of the email or call the Service Response Center at 412-268-2910. Questions emailed to the mailing list or to FMS Announce are not read and will not be answered.
