Move-in Guide

Maintenance Work Order Requests

You should use the following forms based on where you live on campus to have beds lowered or raised (if you did not put in a request at move-in), report maintenance issues in your room or in the building, insect sightings or suspected insects and more. This is the quickest way to report a problem. The forms are sent to the proper departments. We won't know you need assistance if you don't submit a form. 

We take any insect reports VERY seriously. Please follow these steps so we can respond quickly to your report.

  1. Fill out the proper work order.
  2. Notify your residence hall staff immediately. This can be the front desk, an RA/CA, Graduate Hall Director or Hall Director.
    • Greek Village's front desk is located at Conklin Hall.
    • University Apartments' front desk is located at Falcon Heights.
  3. Don't spread rumors. Trained staff will connect with you ASAP to identify the problem and come up with a quick solution.
