The Maintenance Team is currently comprised of seven individuals and operates with a day and evening shift to maintain more than 600,000 square feet of conditioned space. The team also has one technician on call to cover any emergencies that might occur during non-office hours (over a weekend, etc.).
The heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are one major responsibility of the maintenance department. If temperature regulation is needed, call the Physical Plant office.
The Maintenance Team also provides minor furniture and appliance repair as needed. Other facility related functions including electrical and plumbing work are also the responsibility of the Maintenance Team.
Any problems with any of the physical systems on campus should be referred to the Physical Plant, as should any structural problems such as leaking roofs, or cracked walls.
As the day-to-day activities of the team are directed by the work order process, entering a work request as soon as a problem is discovered will help expedite the evaluation and repair process.
Emergency situations should be phoned in to the Physical Plant at (812) 941-2330, but all other requests must be received in writing. For emergency situations after normal business hours contact University Police at (812) 941-2400.
