Q. What does the new work order service request look like?

A. A screenshot of the new system is below.


Q. How do I log in to the new system?

A. Use your Bowdoin user ID and password.  Make sure not to include the "@bowdoin.edu" as part of your user ID.

Q. How do I request a work order and what has changed from the current system?

A. When submitting a request for service you will be prompted to provide your name, phone number, email address, and the action requested, as well as selecting a building. The Work Order Controller will review the request and unlike the existing system, you will receive notification as the status of the service request changes.

Q. How do I indicate “Permission To Enter” (PTE)?

A. When a service request is submitted Permission To Enter (PTE) is assumed. If there are restrictions as to when the room or area is available, that information must be entered in the “Action Requested” field. Entry to student’s rooms will typically occur after 9:30 am Monday through Friday except in the case of emergencies.

Q. What if I don’t see a building or room listed?

A. The building or room can be selected via a drop down list. If the building or room you are submitting the service request for isn’t in the drop down list, contact the Work Order Controller at 207.725.3333.

Q. Where can I find the link to submit and check on the status of a pending work order request?
