To maintain the speed and reliability of wireless network service in our residence halls, maintenance work is occasionally required to upgrade infrastructure. When that occurs, residents can expect to see the following:
- Contractors will need to enter your apartment on multiple occasions to perform their work, during their working hours (typically 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. unless otherwise notified).
- Contractors will be cutting holes in walls and ceilings, coring holes in concrete floors, pulling cables, attaching molding to living room walls, patching, and painting.
Anticipated impact to residents:
- You could experience intermittent noise during the duration of the project
- There may be exposed network (ethernet) wiring within your apartment until work has been completed. This should not be a cause for concern.
- If you are present while they are working, you should expect to see contractors wearing uniforms or shirts with company logos.
- Contractors will always lock your hall door as they leave your apartment, so please take your keys with you when you leave, as always, to avoid being locked out.
- If you do not remove these belongings, the contractors will need to move your items out of their way so they can complete the work.
What we need from you:
- Your presence is not necessary while the contractors are there, as they will knock first and then use a key to enter.
- If contractors are present and you need to leave, as always, please take your keys with you when you leave to avoid being locked out.
- You can help our contractors complete this project with the fewest disruptions by making the spaces in which they work accessible and free from large items, boxes or clutter. In some apartments, contractors will work in the:
- Entryway around the front door
- Laundry area
- Dining area & kitchen area
- Living Room
- Hallway between bathroom and bedroom
