Q. How do I request assistance with a facilities issue?
A. To report non-urgent issues please email email@example.com with a detailed description of the work being requested, including building, suite, room number and contact information. To report urgent items, such as water damage issues, please contact the Facilities Planning & Management office by phone at 619-594-5761.
Q. What happens to my work request after I submit it?
A. The request is written into a work order system which generates a work order and is assigned to a crew member. An email confirmation of the work order is sent to the original requester. Work orders are addressed and completed in order of priority (nature of issue) and in the order received. Some requests may require approvals, estimates, or other actions before a work order is fulfilled; these requests are referred to the appropriate facilities management staff for review.
Q. Who do I contact for after-hours facilities issues?
A. The Facilities Planning & Management work order phone line of 619-594-5761 has 24 hour phone coverage. This line is monitored by Facilities staff during normal weekday business hours of 8:00 am – 4:30 pm, and by an answering service at all other times. Emergencies threatening life or property should be reported immediately to SDSU Police at 619-594-1991.
Q. How do I check the status of a work order?
A. The status of a work order may be checked by sending a request to the Facilities Planning & Management work order office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contacting the main line at 619-594-5761.
Q. What do I do if I see water leaking from the ceiling?
A. As with any urgent issue, please contact 619-594-5761 right away. If the issue is noticed outside of normal business hours, you will be directed to the after-hours answering service and a Facilities crew member will respond as soon as possible.
Q. How do I change the temperature in my space?
A. Some thermostats have their set points locked and cannot be adjusted by suite occupants. However, most are not locked and can be adjusted like any home thermostat. Setting the temperature 2 degrees higher, or two degrees lower, than room temperature is all that is needed to turn the heating, or cooling fully on. Please avoid larger adjustments as they will not make the system work more quickly.
Q. How do I know which thermostat controls my office?
A. First, please check with your project or office manager, as they may have an HVAC zone plan you can refer to. If they do not have a zone plan you may request one from Facilities Planning & Management at email@example.com or 619-594-5761.
Q. Who do I call if I’m experiencing a janitorial issue?
