The possession of personal property on campus is done so at your own risk. Physical Plant is not authorized to perform maintenance on or provide care to personal property. The university is not responsible for loss, theft, or breakage of personal property. Secure all personal items or assume the risk, as all areas are accessible by someone at all times of the day.
Remove any packaging from the boxes. Properly dispose of any packaging in your office trash and/or recycle containers. Break down the boxes and place outside of your office with either a trash or recycle sticker. Custodial staff will not remove items that are not displaying the appropriate sticker.
There are thermostats located in some offices or suite areas and all classrooms. These thermostats will adjust the temperature up or down 5 degrees. If more than a 5 degree change is required, please call WMC 590-1370 to report it.

University property, such as keys, must be turned in to the Physical Plant department as part of your exit procedure. If you move to a new office location, a Key Transfer Form must be submitted.

Instructions on how to use the classroom card readers are posted above the door handle on every classroom door. On a safety note, classroom doors should not be propped open with desk chairs or waste baskets as this is a hindrance to wheelchair bound occupants, as well as a safety concern in the event that an evacuation is needed.
When a change in location occurs, there are several things that need to be done. To start the process, an email should be sent to WMC at email@example.com. Include the anticipated move date and number of boxes needed, if necessary. Building, rooms, and occupant information also needs to be provided. You will also need to fill out a Building Access Request Form for new keys or a Key Transfer Form; you'll need to make arrangements with WMC at 590-1370 to turn in any old keys you have. If there is any signage that will be changed, an email should be sent to WMC indicating the changes and locations. Please refer to the Moving Checklist for more information.

Be prepared to give the building name, room number, and your name and phone number, in case we need to get back with you. If a spill occurs, please call as soon as possible. The sooner it can be cleaned the less chance there is of stains occurring or someone slipping.
The custodial staff also supplies the restrooms with paper products. If service is needed, please call WMC and we will dispatch personnel on duty.
After hours, email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave message with WMC; if emergency, call UPD at 1900. The Police will forward to Physical Plant on-call staff responsible to respond, handle emergency matters, and ensure compliance with safety protocol for blood, vomit, etc.
