Work order requests within 14 days of event date will not be accepted.

How will I know if my work order request has been approved?
The officer who submits the work order request will be contacted by Facilities Services via the email address they provided 2-4 business days after the form is submitted. The email message will state if the request is confirmed, denied, or if additional information is needed.
