Maintenance Shop


The Maintenance Shop on campus is the “go to” team for everything that isn’t trade-specific, from repairing broken windows to installing office cubicles. Over a dozen maintenance staff  work full-time to assist tradesmen on scheduled projects and emergencies, to ensure everything is properly maintained on campus. The Maintenance Shop also provides Rental Property Management with two full-time maintenance workers to handle issues for rental tenants.
