The Department of Residential Facilities is responsible for providing or arranging for routine and emergency maintenance and housekeeping services in College Park's residence halls. We have 45 buildings and community centers with just under 2 million square feet of space. During the next year, you will likely have contact with staff from our department's five main units: our x4-WORK Service Center staff (who you call to report problems), Building Services (housekeeping, urban biology, and recycling programs), Facilities Maintenance sections (maintenance and carpentry service, plumbing and electric repairs, temperature management, furniture repair, interior painting and more), our Access Systems staff (install and maintain card access system hardware), or our Project Management and Project Design staff (building renovations, grounds development).
Residential Facilities staff also care for the Eppley Recreation Center, Ritchie Coliseum, the Golf Course Clubhouse, and all renovated chapter houses on Fraternity/Sorority Row.
With nearly 95% of the work you request completed by our own Residential Facilities staff, you receive your principle services from a staff assigned solely to maintain on-campus residence halls. Our staff has been trained to try to understand and know what your needs are and how to better serve you.
