How to Submit a Maintenance Request (FAMIS)

DePauw University uses work order system (FAMIS), which allows the Office of Facilities Management the flexibility to receive service request, track materials, labor cost and inventory within work orders and project management and will serve as an additional communication resource with the campus community requestors. Instructional information and frequently asked questions can be found by accessing the Office of Facilities Management webpage.

Cleaning Checklists

If you are moving out of your assignment in the Residence Halls, Rector Village or in the University-Owned Apartments and Houses, it is important to keep in mind that your living space needs to be returned to the condition that it was found upon your check-in. Below are examples of cleaning-related tasks that need to be completed to assist you in your planning as well as facilitate conversations among roommates.
