Physical Plant is responsible for the ongoing maintenance and appearance of University facilities and grounds. Physical Plant addresses service requests through an automated work order system available to the Lesley community and tenants with internet access. Emergency work requests are handled via telephone.
Physical Plant uses School Dude, a web-based tool, for all service requests. School Dude is available through Single Sign On (SSO). If you are already signed into your Lesley University accounts, you will automatically be signed into School Dude. For instructions on how to submit service requests, please follow the simple instructions in the User Manual. All student requests in dormitories should go directly through the School Dude work order process.
In case of an emergency work request, please call Plant Operations at 617.349.8881 between the hours of 7:30am – 4:00pm Monday-Friday. If the emergency occurs off-hours or on a holiday, please call Public Safety at 617.349.8888.
