Facilities Management

The primary goal of the Facilities Management Department is to provide the University with safe, reliable, quality service, while recognizing the role each employee has in the organization. Department staff aim to effectively maintain a safe, clean and attractive learning, working and living environment by using and developing all available resources. This ranges from effective communication with customers to practicing preventive maintenance. Through these efforts, Facilities Management strives to preserve and enhance the physical assets of UT.

Maintenance Requests 

Procedures

1. Determine whether your work request is an emergency.

An emergency is any situation that threatens lives, could cause serious injuries or effects the scheduled operations of the buildings, equipment or utilities. Examples are: smoke, gas, or burning odors, no air conditioning, backed up drains, overflowing toilets or broken windows. All other work requests are considered routine and require a written work. 

2. Contact Facilities Management.

Office hours are from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you have an emergency request, please contact your R.A. on duty first. If you are unable to contact your resident assistant during normal office hours, please call (813) 253-6227 (after hours and weekends call (813) 257-7777 – Campus Safety). For routine requests, contact your department head, hall director or resident assistant. They will assist you in generating a Work Order Request (forms are available at the front desk of your residence hall and online). Place paper forms in the work order boxes which are checked on a daily basis. Work will be scheduled as soon as possible (availability of parts may impact completion time).

3. Continue communication with Facilities Management.

You will be notified after the work has been completed primarily via door hangers. Please contact the Facilities Management office if there are further problems.
