Maintenance and Housekeeping
The University provides an “in-house” maintenance and custodial staff. Working closely with the housing office, the facilities department conducts safety inspections, performs general maintenance functions and responds to work orders submitted by the housing office. Technicians are on call after business hours and on weekends to respond to emergency repair and other maintenance requests. Custodians regularly clean the public areas in and around all residential buildings.
For any concerns with your room, please submit a “Work Order” on Eagle Links. Go to Eaglelinks > Residence Life > Enter a Work Order
If it is an emergency, please contact the front desk staff or resident assistant for assistance.
Trash Disposal and Recycling
Residents are responsible for cleaning their rooms, suite areas, and bathrooms and for removing all trash and placing it in appropriate receptacles. Each floor in each building has a trash room for residents to put their trash in. Housekeeping staff maintains trash rooms, emptying trash daily. Residents are strongly encouraged to recycle using the provided containers.
