Greek Maintenance


The Greek Chapter is responsible for keeping the property clean. If at any time the Greek Chapter fails to maintain the property in a manner consistent with other University properties the Department of Facilities Management may elect to clean the property for the Greek Chapter and recharge the house for the expense on a time and material basis.

Department of Facilities Management will repair walls, ceilings, floors, floor coverings, doors and millwork where the repair or restoration is caused due to normal wear and tear. All routine repairs are on an as needed basis as reported for repair either by through a Work Request or through inspection by the Facilities Management. Although not an official University policy, our goal is to paint common areas minimally every three years. Individual rooms are by recharge (time and material) only. Repairs due to vandalism are always rechargeable to the operating unit.
