Work Order Request

You can submit and track Physical Plant Work Requests using SCHOOLDUDE from any device with a web browser. At this time, SCHOOLDUDE is the only place to submit work order requests to the SU Physical Plant — only emergencies should be submitted by telephone. The requester for the emergency request should then submit a work order into Schooldude. This page details the registration process and how to submit a work request through SCHOOLDUDE.
