Maintenance

Facilities Management (maintenance) staff makes every effort to keep the residences in good condition. However, normal wear and tear does occur and repairs are necessary. All residents, except women living sororities, submit requests for repairs online through the Maintenance Report Form. Sorority residents submit work orders to their House Director. Remember that your signature on your contract/lease authorizes a Facilities Management, Facilities Services or WITS staff member to enter your room/suite/apartment to complete any work order that you submit throughout the contract period.

Students are responsible for reporting any damages, vandalism, theft or maintenance needs promptly so repairs can be made or replacements ordered in a timely manner. Please report emergency situations to a Residence Life or Service Center staff member immediately.

If an emergency situation arises, please call the Office of Residence Life (503-370-6212) or Campus Safety (503-370-6911) after hours. The following is a list of examples that require an immediate emergency work order (not all inclusive):
