Faculty Handbook Detail Page

Requests for emergency minor repairs and maintenance may be made directly to the Physical Plant Management Office. Major repairs such as painting, renovations, etc., are scheduled annually. Requests of this nature are made at the same time that budgets are approved.

Suggestions and recommendations for preventive maintenance are always helpful, but in no case should anyone other than the Director of the Physical Plant hire any outside agent to do maintenance or repair work of any kind.

Each faculty member is urged to develop a personal regard for University buildings and their contents by closing windows at the end of the day or when the weather so indicates, and by taking every precaution to prevent fires. Moreover, observance of the following regulations is requested:

  • Nails, screws, thumbtacks, or adhesive materials may not be used on woodwork, walls, or doors.
  • Smoking is permitted only in designated areas.
  • Painting faculty offices is on a scheduled basis only. Marks on walls from posters, etc., do not constitute sufficient reason for requesting repainting at unscheduled times.
  • Electrical appliances may not be used in offices or classrooms.
