Typical emergency repairs are:
- Plumbing problems that cause flooding
- Immediate health and safety hazards such as sparking electrical outlets or fixtures.
- Beeping smoke detectors. Do not remove battery should the dectector continuosly beep. This is considered tampering with life safety equipment and you are subject to an automatic fine and processed via the sudent conduct process.
The Office of Residential Life and Building and Grounds reserve the right to conduct facility improvements, repairs, and preventative maintenance in the interest of safety and comfort for our residents and campus community. It is not our practice to offer rebates or to guarantee reassignments should such repairs become necessary. We will attempt to forewarn students regarding disruptions of environment and/or service. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be given the opportunity to do this in every case.
