  • Best Practices for Submitting a Service Request Form
    Best Practices

    Please use the following best practices to help us better serve you and our campus community:

    Office Moves, Relocation or Rearrangement:

    Please follow and include the following in your Service Request Form:

    • The desired date you would like to begin your move.
    • Provide an small description of the items you are requesting to be moved. For example, 1 L-shape desk with a hutch, 2 file cabinets, and 1 bookshelf.
    • What room/building the items are in, and where they are moving to.
    • Computers must be shut down and possibly disconnected if wires are running through the desk, but unfortunately we are unable to reconnect the computer. You will have to contact the ITS Service Desk to move and reconnect any disconnected computers.
    • If there are any desks that are being relocated to another room or building, please have them emptied. A lot of times when we are moving desks we will have to flip the desk on it's side to get it out of the room.
    • If you have any other questions or concerns about your office move, relocation or rearrangement please feel free to contact Mike Brooks.
    Requests for Event Set-ups, Tables and Chairs:

    Please follow and include the following in your Service Request Form:

    • The desired date of your event
    • The time your event starts
    • The time your event is complete
    • What kind of tables you will be requesting
        • 6' rectangle
        • 8' rectangle
        • 6' round
    • How many tables/ chairs you would like (2 - 6' rectangle tables and 4 chairs).
    • Generally we do not have time to do pick ups in the afternoon. If your event finishes at 2:00pm on Monday, your tables/chairs will be picked up the following day (Tuesday). Or if you have a Friday event that finishes at 3:00pm, your tables/chairs will be picked up Monday.
