In order to provide a comprehensive residential experience, we coordinate with other departments and vendors to maintain the facilities and offer optional contractual services for your room.

AC approval & installation

Students residing in non-air-conditioned facilities are not permitted to bring their own air-conditioner unit to campus. However, students with medically documented needs may be approved for air conditioning by submitting (fax or mail) documentation from the student’s family doctor to the Bailey Health Center. Once approved, the student will be directed to Facilities Operations to complete the process.  There is a fee for installation and use of these College-supplied units.  Only Facilities Operations Staff is permitted to install AC units in college-owned properties.

Appliance Rentals

The College has partnered with local companies for approved appliance rentals.

Microfridge

To prevent electrical circuitry overloads, the only microwave permitted in residence hall rooms is a microfridge. A microfridge is a combination refrigerator/microwave that regulates its power supply. Microfridge units may be purchased or rented from this vendor.

Computer Network

All residence halls feature wireless and wired network connections.  Full information about the campus network can be found on the ITS website.  Students in college-owned off-campus properties must contract their own internet services through a local provider.

Custodial

Facilities Operations custodians clean residence hall common bathrooms, kitchens, and common areas. Students are responsible for cleaning individual bedroom (and suite/apartment bathroom and common areas).

Report a Facilities Problem

The Facilities Operations department is responsible for cleaning and maintaining the residence halls.  Our office acts as a liaison between students and Facilities Operations. Students are prohibited from doing their own repairs.

Maintenance Requests

Non-emergency repairs should be submitted through a work order request or by informing your RA.  Emergency requests should be reported immediately as follows:

  • Weekdays 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., call Facilities Operations at 610-330-5373.
  • After 4:30 p.m. and on the weekends, call Public Safety at 610-330-5330.

Laundry Issues

For concerns about laundry facilities please submit a work order request.  Please include the following information so that your request can be processed quickly:

  • Location of the laundry room (building and floor)
  • Exact location of machine that is malfunctioning (ex. 1st washer on the left)
  • Specific description of the problem (ex. washer fills with water but does not drain)

Trash and Recycling

Each floor contains a central trash can and recycling container for small items. Custodians empty hallway trash and recycling containers. You are encouraged to take your room trash directly to the exterior dumpster located near your building.
