Maintenance Request Process for Housing Facilities
Requests are submitted through the myLife portal. A resident must authenticate into myLife to submit a request.
Once a request is submitted, you will receive an automated email confirmation. We aim to process requests within 24 hours during business days. Requests received after 5 p.m. will be processed the following business day.
Request priority depends on the severity of the issue and other work in the queue. Login to the myLife portal to see the status of all maintenance requests.
Resident owned air conditioners are only permitted in Perkins Green & Riverknoll and only if installed by RIT Housing. A resident must request an air conditioner installation by submitting an Air Conditioner Request on the myLife portal. The student submitting the request agrees to pay a non-refundable fee of $125 per season, per air conditioner unit for installation, removal, and utility expenses. The fee will be placed on the student’s account once the air conditioner unit is installed. If it is desired that the fee is shared with roommates, the student submitting the request is responsible for collecting the funds from roommates. Air conditioners may not exceed 5000 BTUs.
Air conditioners not approved and installed by RIT Housing will be removed.
Maintenance requests submitted after 5 p.m. will be processed the next business day. If submitted on a weekend, it will be processed on the next business day, usually Monday. For emergency issues after 5 p.m. or on weekends and holidays, please contact public safety at (585) 475-2853.
