When a student reports a maintenance issue, they are giving permission to WWU staff to enter their room/apartment to provide service to repair/replace the reported issue. If you have questions or concerns, please refer to your Student Housing Agreement.
For routine repairs such as clogged sinks and toilets, burnt out light bulbs, broken blinds, leaky faucets, etc., students must fill out their own maintenance requests in ReADY.
For custodial issues, please send an email to Housing-Facilities@wwu.edu.
If you suspect there might be a rodent, insect or animal infestation in your room/suite, please submit the issue in ReADY.
For emergency issues, such as sewage spills, gas, heat, water, or electrical issues, etc., students should contact their RA, or the RA on call, as soon as possible.
