I put in a request over the weekend and scheduled an appointment for Monday. Why didn't they reach out when they didn't show up? When can I expect them?

Facilities Services is not open on the weekend so requests submitted on Saturday or Sunday don't get processed until Monday. If you submit a request on a weekend, schedule an appointment for Tuesday or later to ensure that the request will be processed by then. For emergencies that occur after hours and need immediate attention call Community Safety and they will contact the on call maintenance technician.

When does water testing and fire testing happen? How does this affect me?

Campus water testing happens annually, usually during winter break. We put signs on fixtures that cannot be used due to testing, please do not use those fixtures. Depending on where we collect samples from, you may not be able to access some of the sinks or water fountains in your building. We ensure that there are other sinks and water fountains are accessible within the building as to minimize any inconvenience.
