Residence Hall Work Orders

Custodial and Maintenance Services

UNM Residence Life and Student Housing is committed to providing clean, well maintained facilities for our residents and staff. RLSH Custodians and Facilities Services Techs are present and engaged in our residence hall communities performing regular daily services and following up on work order requests.

RLSH Custodial Staff maintain cleanliness in public areas which include bathrooms, kitchens, laundry areas, hallways and lounges in traditional & suite style halls, and hallways, laundry areas and community lounges or other common areas in apartment-style halls.

RLSH Facilities Services Techs will respond to maintenance work orders placed for Residence Hall areas including resident rooms. For some issues such as electrical, heating/cooling, plumbing, pest control, and groundskeeping, RLSH will have UNM Facilities Management department staff assist with the repair.

All Custodians and Facilities Services Techs display their LoboCard as identification.
