Maintenance & Housekeeping

Main Content

SIU Residence Halls

Our staff work hard to maintain our facilities and to provide a clean, welcoming environment for our residents and their guests. Our housekeeping staff ensures the cleanliness of public areas such as lounges, semi-private bathrooms and dining halls, however, residents are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their rooms and private bathrooms.

Each summer, we perform maintenance and upgrades on many of our facilities. Maintenance can include painting rooms or hallways, upgrading sprinkler systems, replacing sidewalks or landscaping, and more. Even with this focus on providing the best facilities possible, maintenance issues can occur.

Emergency Maintenance Issues

If you have maintenance concerns with your room or floor that require immediate attention, please contact your resident assistant for assistance.

Routine Maintenance Requests

Routine maintenance requests that do not require immediate assistance may be submitted through the University Housing Portal. These online work requests are processed Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
