Did you know you can send a text message on your phone from any location, 24-7, to report a facilities-related issue or concern? It is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3!

1. When you see or notice something on campus that needs to be reported, use your phone device’s messaging feature to send a text to

2. Include your name and contact information, the building name (and number if you have it), what the facilities-related concern consists of, and include photos when possible.

3. Hit Send.

There's no need to wait until you are in front of your computer or laptop. This is especially helpful if you are in a meeting room or classroom and you notice the temperature is either uncomfortably hot or cold. You can send your text without interruption and without having to wait.

Next month's edition of Building Coordinator's Corner will include custodial inspections, the campus-wide LED lighting project, and a preview of FAMIS enhanced features.

If you have any questions, wish to offer some feedback or have a special topic that you would like to see addressed in the BC Corner, please contact Adriana Avila or Jacquie Vargas.
