Facilities and Maintenance
Maintenance and Work Orders
Any repairs in student rooms, suites, bathrooms, lounges or hallways in the building as well as replacement of items such as lights should be submitted on a work order request form. One work order should be placed for each problem/repair (i.e. do not put multiple repairs/issues on one work order even if they are in the same room or area).
Maintenance request may be done online or reported to the Department of Housing and Residence Life.
If a work order has not been completed in a timely manner, a resident should follow up regarding the problem with his or her Hall Director.
All requests for repair are handled by the Department of Housing and Residence Life Maintenance Monday through Friday 8 AM-3 PM.
