Requests to O&M should be made through the online Work Order request system (unless it is a true emergency). This tool can be found on the Info Center under “Popular Links” and is labeled “Maintenance.” This system helps to track, prioritize and communicate with you the requestor on the status of your request.

Promoting student organizations

Table tents are available in the Mensa, Konditorei, and Den-Rittersaal for campus groups to use in promoting their organization or event.
