Facilities Services Emergency Notification Process

Olin has connected the key mechanical systems for the campus into a Facilities Services notification system. This system will notify the appropriate on-call personnel of issues related to the normal operating ranges of each system. However, if you notice a facility related repair issue while on campus, you should still report the problem to the following areas during the designated times. Emergency repairs include but are not limited to the following: power outages, water leaks, lack of heat or air conditioning.

Service Priorities

Olin College handles work order requests from all across campus. Occasionally emergencies do arise which require priority over other types of requests.

  • Emergency service requests require prompt action because of the immediate or potential hazard to the safety of the campus community or property. They may also address situations that may threaten an important campus function. Emergency situations are given priority status and will receive immediate attention. Examples include power outages, gas/water leaks, flooding, severe heating or air conditioning problems, snow and ice removal, etc. All fire alarms are reported to Public Safety. Routine service requests include common maintenance and repair needs. Examples include maintenance of doors, locks, windows, lighting, cleaning, water spills, office furniture, etc.
  • Special service requests are typically date specific, labor intensive or require technical review. These will be prioritized and subject to availability of capital funds. Examples include security alarms, power installations, painting, carpeting, renovations, furniture and equipment moving/disposal, office moves, etc.
