To help us process your work request in a timely and efficient manner, please be as specific as possible in describing the problem and the location (Apartment / Hall, Room Number) of the problem. If you have turned in a request online, please do not turn in the problem in the repair log at the front desk of your residence hall.

 

Routine Repairs

Routine repair needs that you experience with your room should be reported via RMS Student Web or to the front desk of your residence hall. If you have submitted your request via RMS Student Web there is no need to make a duplicate request at the front desk. Please note: Requests made using RMS Student Web are monitored Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. A repair person should respond in 48 hours in most situations.

 

If a repair person does not show up within 48 hours or the repair person fails to fix the problem, you should report the problem via RMS Student Web and report, "This is a repeat request." If the repair still does not get serviced within 48 Hours, call the Housing Facilities Office at x7928. The 48 hour response time is due to the number of repairs being serviced at the time your request has been submitted. The staff responds to each repair as timely as possible.

 

For work requests related to telephone or internet service, or with problems you may be experiencing with your computer, do not use this form. Please contact the Office of Information Technology Services Help Desk at x7900.

 

For work requests pertaining to the laundry cards, do not use this form. Please contact the Housing Office at x7737. If you are experiencing a problem with the laundry machines (washer or dryer), please use this form.
