Rental Housing Work Orders

Rental Housing tenants are asked to be good stewards of their units and surroundings. As such, residents are responsible for reporting maintenance and repair needs. Small problems left unattended can result in more costly repairs or utility charges months later. Repair problems that are caused by negligence will be charged to the tenant (i.e., broken windows, torn screens, foreign objects flushed down toilets and drains, etc.)

All requests for maintenance and repairs should be submitted via email at or called into the work order desk at 598-1264 during normal business hours (Mon-Fri, 8 am – 4:00pm). Please provide the following:
        a) Your name                                    c) Your telephone number
        b) Your unit number                         d) Specific problem  description

Requests for larger work orders are at the discretion of the director of Housing based on (a) the relative urgency of the problem, (b) budgetary resources available, and (c) priority in a long range capital improvement program.

Maintenance emergencies that arise after hours: please call Sewanee Police Department at 598-1111.
