Services we provide

Our objective is to work, with Campus Division colleagues support, to ensure that facilities are operational, available and safe, by undertaking a comprehensive maintenance regime utilising directly employed craft and technical staff, and specialist external contractors.

Repair Service

Our staff undertake general repairs to University buildings, replacing faulty items such as lamps and broken locks. We fault find on plant and equipment including air conditioning and heating systems.

We also undertake small budget new works and alterations, such as installing additional electrical sockets, new shelves or the cutting of additional keys. These services are classed as recharged to customers and a Departmental Charge Code will be required before these works can proceed, please.

Maintenance Help Desk

The Maintenance Help Desk provides a central point of contact to request work and is open on weekdays from 7am to 7pm, providing a central point of contact to make requests.  Requests are dealt with according to their urgency and, by using the self-service option, this allows our staff to prioritise tasks. Please go to and use the Request a Job/Report a Fault button to make non-urgent requests. 

Outside weekdays from 7am to 7pm, a voicemail message will direct you to call the University's Security Services staff, who will be able to take details and add the request for you (0117) 928 7848 or Extn 87848 internally.
