FXIT

The “FXIT” line is the number you call to get a maintenance concern in your room or apartment fixed.

  • For a facility emergency during office hours call the FXIT line, x5-FXIT (5-3948)
  • For a facility emergency after hours call your front desk and staff will contact the Maintenance Assistant (MA) on duty.

Notice: By submitting a Work Order Request, I am authorizing uniformed university personnel, custodial service personnel or contracted campus vendors (pest control etc) to enter my room, suite or apartment to make the repairs requested. I understand, I need to be prepared for repair staff to enter my space by being fully clothed, remove any valuables or cash from plain view and to the extent possible, provide access to the area needing repair.

For questions about the status of a request call x5-FXIT (5-3948).
