Bicycles in buildings - No one is permitted to walk or park a bicycle, unicycle or motorized bicycle in any campus building unless such area is specifically designed for bicycle parking. Bicycles found illegally parked in any campus building will be impounded by the Public Safety Department.
Bulletin Boards - Bulletin boards must comply with campus standards prior to installation by Facilities Management. Bulletin boards are difficult as well as costly to relocate. If at all possible, it is appropriate to install a new bulletin board at a new location rather than moving an old one to the new location. A copy of the campus standards for bulletin boards is available from Facilities Management. Bulletin boards to be installed in building corridors or hallways must be of fire-resistant construction per California Fire Code regulations. Due to this regulation, the mounting of holders for handout materials and pamphlets on bulletin boards is discouraged. Bulletin boards may be obtained from Facilities Management by using the work order process or by submitting a Project Request Form (link).
Electrical Connections - Please do not try to repair electrical equipment yourself. Instead, contact Facilities Management at ext. 1120 for help. Facilities Management should be contacted prior to any selection of equipment, which will be connected to the campus’ electrical system and used in a campus facility. All equipment is required to comply with campus electrical requirements. Facilities Management is also required to record the use of such equipment for campus energy consumption reports.
Elevators - Trouble calls for elevators out of order should be made to Facilities Management at ext. 1120, or after business hours to the campus Public Safety Department at ext. 1111. Facilities Management administers the service contracts with private vendors for the maintenance of the campus' elevators. Therefore, any complaints concerning services provided by such private vendors should be provided in writing to Facilities Management. Unauthorized personnel should never attempt to adjust or modify the operation of the elevators.
Events or Reservations of Facilities - All event requests, facility reservations, and equipment needs are to be made to the Facility Rental Office at ext. 1039. If the request involves using campus equipment or Facilities Management services, please submit a request to Facilities Rental ten days prior to the event.
Fire Extinguishers - Fire extinguishers are maintained by Facilities Management and are coded as to their location. Please do not relocate or remove any fire extinguisher except in case of fire emergency. Please immediately report the discharge of any fire extinguisher.
Key Issue - Campus keys are issued and maintained by Facilities Management. Faculty and staff can request keys on a Key Authorization Form. A Dean or a Department Head and the Director of Public Safety prior to issuance of keys must sign these forms. Interdepartmental trading of keys is not permitted. To ensure you are not responsible for a key no longer in your possession, it is important that you make sure the keys you are issued are returned to Facilities Management. The campus has established a $50 key replacement fee for keys you may lose. Please contact the Key Shop at ext. 1125 if you have questions. For more information, review the Key Policy.
Mechanical/Fan/Electrical Rooms - Access to mechanical, fan or electrical rooms is restricted to Facilities Management personnel. No materials are to be stored in these rooms. Noises or fumes originating from such rooms should be immediately reported to Facilities Management at ext. 1120.
Occupants' Responsibilities - Campus occupants are responsible for turning out lights, keeping windows closed, locking doors and securing their rooms and areas. Occupants are requested not to make any permanent modifications to any room or area without prior authorization by Facilities Management. No items should be attached to any walls or doors in any hall or any building without prior authorization by Facilities Management. Occupants are encouraged to utilize bulletin boards for posting of any information. Custodians are not permitted to clean personal rugs placed in any office or room.
Opening Buildings - Custodians are responsible for unlocking all campus buildings and classrooms for normal schedules. Faculty and departmental offices will only be unlocked by campus Public Safety Department personnel. Facilities Management personnel are not permitted to open offices for students.
Painting - Painting services are performed on a scheduled basis, generally on an eight year cycle. Any request for painting, which reduces the time of the cycle, must be charged for through the Facilities Management charge back system.
Reporting Service Complaints - Our objective is to provide requested services in a timely and satisfactory manner. If you are dissatisfied with our service, please notify the Work Control Center at ext. 1120. You will receive a response to your complaint and we will make every effort to provide you the service requested in a satisfactory manner.
Roofs - In order to prevent damage to the roofs of campus buildings, no persons are permitted on building roofs without prior authorization by Facilities Management unless the roof is specially designed for foot traffic. No one may place any equipment on any building roof on campus without prior authorization by Facilities Management, and then such access should be limited to the specific area designated by Facilities Management as accessible.
Signs & Banners - Facilities Management must approve permanent signs placed either inside or outside of campus facilities prior to their installation. Campus maintenance or custodial personnel will remove temporary signs not posted on bulletin boards or approved by Facilities Management & Services.
Campus Grounds Care - The natural environment of the campus is maintained by the Facilities Management personnel assigned to Grounds Maintenance. Grounds personnel are not permitted to prune or propagate any plants or trees for the personal use of anyone. Notification of grounds or landscaping problems can be made by phoning Facilities Management at ext. 1120 or by submitting a Web Link Service Request (link).
Use of Campus Trees - In order to preserve the natural beauty of our campus, no connections, bolts, nails, or other objects may be attached to any tree on the campus' grounds without the prior written authorization by Facilities Management. Bicycles, unicycles, motorcycles, or motor scooters are prohibited from being parked against or locked to a tree on campus grounds.
Work for Non-State Funded Organizations - Facilities Management is not funded to provide maintenance services (respond to service requests) to campus or ancillary organizations which are not funded by the State of California's General Fund. Services provided to non-state organizations and auxiliaries will be performed on a chargeback basis.
