Work Requests

Jobs done by the Physical Plant team require that a work order be processed.

Our primary method is to complete the web based request form available on this web site. The user completes all of the required information and upon submission, the information is automatically sent to the Physical Plant office for processing. The required information includes: 

  • Name of Requestor
  • Department
  • IU Email Address
  • Phone Number
  • Building
  • Room Number or Other Location
  • Brief Description of the Problem or Work Being Requested

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.

Large remodeling projects are also done under the supervision of the Physical Plant Administrative Office but must have funding and must be approved by the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs.

For some jobs, the cost of labor will be covered by the Physical Plant; however, for other projects, the cost of materials and labor may be charged to the requester.

The Administrative Office also acts as a liaison between IU Southeast, IU Bloomington, and surrounding community when necessary. In this capacity, the Physical Plant administration, under the direction of the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs, is actively involved in long and short-term planning and development of the campus.

Green Initiatives

Green Initiatives


The Physical Plant Office has initiated several energy conservation measures and programs in an effort to reduce utility costs across campus.

These programs include a wide variety of initiatives from replacing exterior lighting to redeploying of the cleaning staff. Everyone has a role in energy conservation and can help to achieve campus-wide goals.

Storm Water

Storm Water


Stormwater is rain or melted snow which has run off the land including surfaces like roads, roofs and parking lots. It is now proven that stormwater runoff is a major source of pollution and we are beginning to take the necessary preventative steps to minimize its effects.
