Hall staff will elevate the request for a timeline update and respond to residents directly. Students should not submit another work order for a previously reported issues. 

After Hours Maintenance Emergencies

Please contact RA on-call. On-call numbers are posted at Service Centers, on exterior doors, and throughout the hall.

University Housing at UC works diligently to provide our residents with healthy and safe space. Our highest priority is the health and comfort of our residents. When environmental issues such as air quality or moisture concerns arise, Facilities Management works quickly to address these issues in our residence halls. For more detailed information on mold remediation and prevention, please visit the EPA website. 

Ways to Prevent Environmental Concerns 

  • Practice routine housekeeping; clean/dust your room/apartment and restrooms. 
  • If your space has a dehumidifier, empty it regularly. The humidifiers will automatically stop running when full. 
  • Remove trash regularly. 
  • Always allow items to dry thoroughly; do not store items that are wet or damp. 
  • Avoid water or wet items sitting on surfaces for long periods of time. 
  • Ensure proper ventilation throughout the restroom and living areas. 
  • Use restroom exhaust fans during showering or bathing.
  • Never leave trapped steam/humidity in restrooms. 
  • Do not obstruct return vents or supply vents. 
  • Proper air circulation provides a healthy indoor enviornment.

Processing Reports

  • The hall staff relays the information to our work control office for a work order to be generated.
  • A technician is assigned the work order based on priority. Environmental concern work orders are assigned as high priority.
  • The technician then visits the space. Typical action items would be to:
    • check the filters on the HVAC unit and change if necessary.
    • inspect the internal components of the HVAC unit and clean surfaces.
    • inspect the room for any visible presence of mold.
  • If mold is sighted, then UC's Environmental Health & Safety department will review the site for assessment and remedy recommendations.
