Submitting a Work Request


We take great pride in keeping the campus clean, orderly, and in working condition and we hope you will help us continue to do just that.  If there is something we have overlooked or something in need of our attention, please let us know.

Facilities Operations incurs costs for routine services, and the requesting department will incur costs associated with non-routine services.  For Capital Projects, New/Additional Space Allocation, Design, and Construction Requests, please submit a Capital Project Request.
