Work Requests

For work requests needing immediate attention, call Public Safety at x1717

Physical facilities in need of repair or replacement should be brought to immediate attention through the work request system.

New work request system

There is a new and simple work request system that will send your request straight to Facilities.

  1. Log in to
  2. On the left menu click the link titled “Facilities Request” located towards the bottom just beneath “Parking Services”
  3. You will be brought to a new page. On the left hand side there is a toolbar.  Click the link titled “submit a request”
  4. Follow the instructions on the survey (Make sure to select the “Facilities” option under “Repair Center”)
  5. Leave a brief and detailed request
  6. Hit submit to complete the request

You will receive email confirmation containing a tracking number once your request has been submitted.  You can use that number to track the status of your work request on the same work request website.  Once Facilities reviews your request, you will receive an update via email on the status of your request.

When a work request is turned in, please communicate this to all roommates as an authorized employee will arrive to complete the repair. Maintenance personnel will enter residential areas from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm to follow up on work requests that do not need immediate attention. There are nighttime facilities staff available for after-hour emergencies.

Tips for if your cable is not working

  • Check all connections for television – power cord, coax cable, connections for additional devices.
  • Check settings for additional devices – Gaming systems, Apple TV, DVD, BlueRay, ROKU, Etc. The television will require the user to switch settings for different devices depending on which input on the television the device is plugged into.
  • Understand television and devices that will be connected to the television.
  • If the television is new “out of the box” a channel scan may be required
  • It will be important to read the manual for the specific television as this process can vary by make and model.
  • Important to note, it is unlikely that there would be an outage in some residents’ rooms and not the entire campus.  If a resident is experiencing an outage it will likely be due to an above mentioned issue unless the entire campus is out.
  • Make sure power is turned on.
  • Make sure batteries are in the remote.Make sure to read television manual to see if remote needs to be programmed.
