The Resource Center will act as the single point of entry for all the services that we provide including, but not limited to, routine maintenance and repairs of facilities, moving, custodial services and architectural designs for minor renovations.
Upon receipt, the Resource Center will direct your request to the appropriate person within our department, who will contact you if appropriate.
You may place your request in any format: memo, walk-in, telephone call (646) 660-6630 , or e-mail. A Request for Service form can be found through the Baruch Website or through the Facilities website for electronic submission. Please bookmark this location for future reference. As in the past, emergencies should be telephoned to (646) 660-6630 during normal working hours or to Public Safety/Security at (646) 660-6000 at other times.
Anyone may submit a request for routine repairs, e.g., replacement of light bulbs or calls for pest control, however, non-routine requests will normally require the approval of a chairperson, dean or vice-president, depending on the situation. A funding source is generally required for non-routine services. You will be informed when this is the case. Upon receipt, each request will be logged into our recently implemented computerized facilities management system, where it will be tracked by using a work order number.
The Resource Center is intended to improve our services, not to distance you from us. You should always feel free to contact any of our department managers.
