Report an emergency situation

If there is an emergency such as a fire, or immediate physical danger to you or others, call 911.

If there is an urgent matter, call the campus numbers (above).
While Facilities Management regular office hours are 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, staff are on campus 24-hours a day to handle urgent problems.

Our request response process

After the Facilities Management office receives a request, the following steps are taken:

  1. Facilities Management creates a work order and determines if the request should go to the technician as a priority request.
    • All temperature complaints, plumbing requests and security issues (broken locks, broken windows, etc.) are distributed the same day.
    • With the exception of emergencies (floods, power failures, etc.), which take priority, we try to handle calls in the order they were received.
  2. Work Order information is distributed to the appropriate shop foreman or assistant foreman by pager, radio or phone. He or she then distributes the request to an individual technician.
  3. You can track the status of your service request in FAMIS Web.
