University Housing at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville is a featured program.
University Housing Facilities Management (UHFM) is the unit assigned to the development and maintenance of SIUE University Housing facilities and grounds. UHFM is responsible for repairing housing units, care of the grounds surrounding housing facilities, performs snow removal, maintains the cleanliness of common areas and offices in University Housing buildings, oversees pest control and much more.
Resident initiated work orders are assigned an immediate priority following emergent work orders. Last year 82% of student initiated work orders were completed within 48 hours, with 97% completed within three days.
The quick turnaround time to address facilities related issues in the resident halls combined with the additional attentive and quality services provided by University Housing Facilities Management enhances student satisfaction and therefore positively impacts retention rates.
