How We Work

The Facilities Customer Service Center (FCSC), formerly known as the Facilities Service Desk, serves as a courteous and knowledgeable communications conduit between University Facilities and the campus community for all maintenance-related requests and projects. Work activities are managed through the Maximo Maintenance Management system and coordinated through the FCSC.  We accept Service Requests via telephone, e-mail, or Maximo.  Upon receipt, FCSC staff assess Service Requests and convert them to Work Orders, which are then assigned to Trades, Buildings, Grounds, or Moving work units.

Work Orders are dispatched according to Priority Levels

Emergency work requests are processed immediately and assigned to the appropriate work unit for prompt response and resolution.

Our Customer Call Center provides live, around-the-clock customer support seven days a week.  In addition, on-call department managers quickly respond to emergencies and assist in protecting life safety and the campus infrastructure.

FCSC staff apprise requestors of lengthy repair timelines and delays in scheduled work.
