Repair Requests

MySchoolBuilding.com is Hampshire College's maintenance request system. This service allows you to submit building repair requests for your room/hall/mod to our facilities and grounds department online. 

Requesting maintenance service in your room or mod authorizes a facilities and grounds worker to enter the area you specify. You do not need to be present for the repair work to be done. Facilities employees normally will not attempt to work in a student's room or mod before 9 a.m. unless there are special reasons for doing so.

Please DO NOT call facilities and grounds directly.
