Service Requests

If a resident is experiencing any issues in their living space (water leak, broken furniture, WiFi connectivity, etc.) they may submit a service request for maintenance or repair at no cost.

To provide a quick response, please include the following in your service request:

  • Your preferred day of week (Monday - Friday) and time window (9-11 a.m. or 1-3 p.m.) for the work to be completed.
  • A detailed description of the issue in order to better assist.
  • Your service request details will be shared with your roommates so they are aware of the service request submission.

Submit and check the status of your service request on the SDSU Housing App or the Housing Portal.

To provide a quick response to your service request, maintenance may access your space when you are not present. Please clear a space for maintenance to work to ensure there is no contact with your personal belongings. Always remember to take your room keys with you if you leave your space as maintenance staff are trained to lock the door when they leave.

As a reminder, if you or your roommates become ill, are instructed to self-quarantine or believe you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, contact the Office of Housing Administration immediately to cancel the service request and reschedule the repairs.
