Facilities Maintenance, Modification, & Services Requests

The Facilities department is legislatively funded to maintain campus buildings as originally constructed. Facilities Maintenance includes routine work performed to maintain the campus grounds, utility systems, and building exteriors/interiors. Any work performed, whether it be maintenance or other services, is either done or managed by the Facilities department. Occupants of these buildings are not allowed to make any modifications whatsoever. The Facilities department will perform routine maintenance at no cost to the departments. Modifications to buildings, structures, and grounds that exceed the original construction as well as requests that are outside the scope of routine maintenance, are paid for by the department which has use of the space. Costs include materials and labor that is specific for each trade within the Facilities department. All modifications, remodeling, or attachment to UVU Facilities and Grounds must be approved, in advance, by the UVU Facilities Department.

There are three ways to request that maintenance or modifications/remodeling work be done.

Please read all three options before submitting a request.
