+
What constitutes a routine maintenance (non-emergency) situation in the building?

Anything that does not immediately affect your life or safety. Examples include a burnt-out or broken light, scuffs on walls, temperature control issues, dirty blackboard/whiteboard.

+
What do I do to place a routine maintenance request?

Please do not call the emergency numbers. Instead, you may do one of the following (listed below in order of anticipated response time):

  • Place your own request through the online Service Request tool, WebTMA. Go here for access. For more information about logging into TMA, review documentation.
  • Ask the Academic Administrator in your department to place a service request through the on-line Service Request tool.
  • Email us at KSSC@wellesley.edu with a detailed description of the non-emergency maintenance requested.
+
What do if I have an idea for an improvement to a space in the building, such as a classroom, an office, and a common area?

Most likely, improvements that fall outside of routine maintenance constitute a billable request. You may email us at KSSC@wellesley.edu with an explanation of your improvement idea or request, and we will work with you to prioritize your proposal and determine whether funding for the project might be drawn from Department funds, KSSC funds, or whether an application for College capital funds may be appropriate.
