Asbestos Locations within Buildings

All buildings constructed prior to 1981 are presumed to contain asbestos in thermal system insulation, floor tile and surfacing materials unless otherwise stated. Actual survey results have confirmed the presence of asbestos-containing materials in the following buildings and locations.  The asbestos in these materials does not constitute a health hazard if left undisturbed.  List is current as of January 2017. 

NOTE:  All 9" x 9" floor tiles located throughout the University are likely to contain asbestos.  Due to the tiles' wide distribution, their individual locations are not typically shown here.  If your building is not shown on this list, it may still contain 9" x 9" asbestos-containing floor tiles.  Also, fire doors, steam and condensate pipe insulation, high voltage cabling insulation and some 12" x 12" floor tiles throughout the campus may contain asbestos as well.
