Status of Opening Work Orders and Maintenance

It has truly been a busy summer in the Department of Residence Life. As our maintenance department continues to work diligently to address all maintenance related issues, we would like to let all of our students know that some work on projects may extend into the Fall semester. We ask that when you arrive, if a project is noted on your inventory or by your RA as in progress, or in the queue to be addressed, that you are aware that our maintenance staff will be addressing those issues as soon as possible. We typically address issues on the basis of urgency with safety, security, and basic life functions ranked at the highest priority first, with other concerns after those have been remedied. We thank you for your patience. If you should have any questions regarding the status of your work order, please contact your Resident Director for follow-up.
