All new buildings have night setback and/or occupied/unoccupied control. Most buildings are also closed for usage outside of normal operating hours of offices and classes to reduce energy consumption.
USF uses building automation controls to schedule building HVAC system i.e. BSN is an example of a building which is controlled on a schedule depending on occupancy. The Environmental group receives a weekly schedule from the building scheduling department. Once they have the schedule, they program each building accordingly. The system is accessed through a server. The system is also accessible through the web on a secure network.
