You must not make any repairs and alterations yourself. If discovered, you may be liable to restore the space to its original condition.

The following are common examples of alterations:
- Tamper with electrical or data wiring
- Install additional locks
- Drill holes into walls or floors

- Ask strangers to wait outside the building while their hosts are summoned.

Do not leave trash or containers in the stairways or hallway. The hallways should be clear at all times in case of an emergency.
Do not use your own garbage bags.
Do not put any sharps (e.g. needles) in trash or leave them on the floor. Uncontaminated sharps cannot be thrown in the trash. They must be put away in a sturdy cardboard box that is sealed with tape. Then mark the box “Trash, Please Remove” so the custodians know to pick it up.
Chemical containers are only to be placed in trash if the container is triple rinsed, defaced, and dry.
If the custodians see any sharps, powder, paste, or liquid on the floor, they will not service the area for their own health and safety.
For guidance on the disposal of hazardous material, consult the EH&S Dispose of Waste.
For special cleaning requests such as carpet shampoo or cleaning appliances are recharged, submit a general request to Stanley Facilities.
Liquid nitrogen is available to authorized labs in the filling station, Room 170 (outside at the loading dock, NW side of the building). The common area key signed out to each occupant will provide access to this area. There is an automatic filling station for use with pressurized dewars and a manual fill station for non-pressurized vessels. There is an incline going down into the room so take caution when entering and exiting. Please contact Thom Opal for guidance on safe use of these fill stations.
Dry Ice (sign-out required) is available in the Stockroom, Room 156. Please email Receiving at email@example.com if you have any questions. If you plan to ship materials packed with dry ice, please contact Thom Opal or campus EH&S.
During Open Office Hours:
Option 1 – come to Room 174: Our staff will unlock the room for you without charge. If no one is in the office, call 510-326-0496 to find out when a staff member will be available.
Option 2 – call Campus Facilities Services at 510-642-1032: A locksmith will unlock the room for a fee of about $400. A valid chartstring must be provided at time of request.
After Business Hours (Including weekends and University Holidays):
There is no service provided for lockouts after business hours. You may want to create a backup plan for times that you might be locked out so that you can avoid possible long waits for help or any fee charges.
If you have lost a key, contact UCPD at (510) 642-6760 (or 510-642-3333 for TTY users) to file a police report.
Submit a request by providing your room number along with a description of the problem. Photos are encouraged.
Routine maintenance of the building is provided by Campus Facilities Services free of charge. It does not extend to damages due to misuse and negligence; labs will be held financially responsible for those required repairs.
Seismic bracing of standard laboratory equipment is paid for by Stanley Facilities if work is requested through Stanley Facilities. Any request made outside of Stanley Facilities will not be reimbursed. Beyond standard equipment, the lab is responsible for the cost of seismic design and anchorage.
Neither Campus Facilities Services nor Stanley Facilities is responsible for maintenance of laboratory-owned equipment.
