About Voice Service Requests

Service Requests received on-line or through email will receive a confirmation with a reference number. The resulting Work Order will be completed within five (5) working days after receipt of the Service Request.

Please note:

  • Department moves and other projects must be coordinated in advance as much as possible, since a time estimate to do work is dependent upon an analysis of the work involved.
  • It is your responsibility to make sure the jack is accessible, and that furniture does not obstruct the jack location before the technician arrives to complete the request.
  • We will try to complete service requests in less than five (5) days. However, equipment failures and other unexpected problems always demand our immediate attention.
