Operations & Maintenance

Facilities Operations and Maintenance serves the building and repair needs of the campus community. We pride ourselves on our quality of work and our service relationships with community members.

We strive to respond to emergencies as quickly as possible. Non-emergency requests vary in scope and will be scheduled based on the availability of staff and resources. Please see our list of standard response times.

Providing advance notice is the best way to ensure timely completion of your work order. Requests that are time-specific, complex (multi-shop, long lead items, plans or inspections), or require travel should be submitted as soon as possible for scheduling. Your needs are important to us; feel free to contact us at (206)296-6996 for questions. We will be happy to discuss specific planning ideas with you as it pertains to your location, scope, and timeline.
