Work Orders

In order to provide the best service we can, the Physical Plant provides a few ways to turn in work orders:
  • See your department head and ask who is the designated Maintenance Connect requester and have him/her create a work order.
  •  If the above isn't possible, and it is a long work order, has attached media such as pictures, or multiple work orders for different departments, we invite you to email them to physicalplant@wtamu.edu.
  •  You are also welcome to  call us at ext. 2133 to submit your request.

After the work order has been completed, we welcome the requester to submit a survey, either through our work order software or by filling out the SSC Services for Education Survey.

In Case of Emergency

Maintenance requests that must have immediate attention due to the fact that they pose a health risk, possibility of injury, or have a probability of destroying university property should be reported to the Physical Plant during office hours. If a situation occurs after office hours, it should be turned in by calling the Boiler Plant. Examples of emergency maintenance include:  Flooding, constant water leaks (not due to rain), gas leaks, etc. Emergencies may also include situations where an event is being held and electrical outlets, lights and Heating/Cooling aren’t working properly.
