Any future maintenance to the equipment done by Facilities Management is chargeable to the department.
Facilities Management personnel will assemble new furniture or other departmental equipment upon request. However, labor and any necessary materials will be billed to the department for assembly.

Facilities Management makes every effort to minimize utility outages on campus. However, periodic maintenance and emergencies may require the curtailment of utility services on campus. Planned shutdowns are communicated via building coordinators and campus newswire well in advance to allow for planning by those affected. Emergency or unforeseen shutdowns will normally be self evident in nature and will be corrected or bypassed as soon as possible. If there is a life threatening situation, call 911 or the Department of Public Safety at x2215 immediately. For all other situations, please contact Facilities Management at x2349 and we will correct the problem as quickly as possible.
