Building Manager Update (October 22)

Here are a number of updates and reminders about FP&M operations.

Changes to Scheduled Instructional Spaces

The list of instructional spaces scheduled for use in the Fall 2020 semester has been updated by the Registrar. For detailed information, consult these two lists:

Please note that inactive classrooms will not be serviced by custodial staff starting on Monday, October 19. If you have a room that has been inactivated that still requires custodial services, please contact Kris Ackerbauer ( to discuss your requirements.

Reminder: Summer 2021 Project Renovation Deadlines

The deadline for renovation project submissions is December 1—less than two months away.  To request a renovation project, submit a Customer Request.

Reminder: Mice and Other Pests

As outdoor temperatures cool, mice and other pests often attempt to invade campus buildings. Lower occupancy levels makes this easier to go unnoticed. Please work with your building occupants to keep an eye out for signs of mice and other pests. Report pest-related issues to Physical Plant Customer Service.

Reminder: Polling Locations on Campus

UW-Madison will host a number of polling locations for the November 3 general election.

    • University Club
    • Below Alumni House
  • University Apartments Community Center
  • Wisconsin Energy Institute
  • Nicholas Recreation Center
  • Chazen Museum of Art
  • Memorial Union

The allocated spaces in these facilities will be unavailable from 6am on November 3rd until approximately 7am on November 4th. Cleaning and disinfecting is planned to take place overnight.

Note: An extended delay in closing the polls could impact availability the following morning. For information, please contact Jesse Winters (
