Data Wiring and Connections
Communications Services is responsible for maintaining and repairing the physical data connections entering the campus and those connecting campus buildings. Wiring and connections within buildings is the responsibility of the department(s) in that building. If the wiring within a building is damaged, or otherwise fails, the department(s) is responsible for all expenses incurred to repair the problems. These repairs can be made by Communications Services technicians, any other campus department, or an off-campus vendor. If you want Communications Services to repair the cabling or connections within a building, report the problem to our Help Desk at extension 8700. Communications Services will bill the repairs on a time and materials basis.
NOTE: All wiring within buildings must be installed or repaired in accordance with existing code and safety regulations, and must follow industry standards for attachments and terminations. Communications Services reserves the right to disconnect wiring installations that are non-standard and that are causing problems on the networks we maintain.
If the wiring between buildings is damaged or fails, Communications Services is responsible for all expenses incurred to repair the problem, and only Communications Services is authorized to make the repairs. Call our Help Desk at extension 8700 to report problems with wiring between buildings.
