Work Order Requests

All requests for repairs and other work must be submitted electronically by the Departmental Chair, Departmental Secretary or their designee to the Buildings and Grounds Department via the link on the Campus Planning and Facilities or Buildings and Grounds web page. Some examples of typical work items requested are:

  • installation of picture hanging hooks
  • assembly of furniture
  • installation of electric outlets
  • installation of shelves
  • replace lamps in the light fixture

Special cleaning requests such as rug and upholstery shampooing and blind cleaning must be submitted as a work order. A B&G Supervisor will contact the room occupant to schedule work.

Secured, alarmed rooms are cleaned either on a schedule since we need Public Safety to open the room and re-arm the room once we complete the cleaning or with room occupants present. If your room is alarmed, or has recently been alarmed, please contact Buildings and Grounds to have the room added to the secured room cleaning schedule or to arrange cleaning when you are present.

Submit a work order request to Buildings and Grounds for minor moves within a room, such as a file cabinet from one wall to another, or to another room within the Department. Major moves and renovations must be planned and scheduled through the Office of Campus Planning and Facilities at extension 8226.

Work order requests will be scheduled in priority order:

  • health and safety issues are the highest priority, warranting an immediate response
  • facility preservation
  • teaching and research related needs and issues
  • special event set-ups that are scheduled in advance
  • all other requests
