Facilities Management (FM) supports Western Washington University’s academic mission through the maintenance and operation of Western’s facilities and grounds.
This support is accomplished through leadership, teamwork, and our commitment to quality customer service for the Western Washington University community.
Requesting services is easier!
For those of you who need services, whether it be a light fixture that doesn’t turn on, or a chair that needs repairing, visit our new, user-friendly web portal, ReADY. You can find helpful guides to logging in and approving financial expenditures to the right of this page. There are also handy hints on how to make and manage access requests.
Save time and money on keys for new staff
If you are swapping room assignments in your department, you don’t need to order new keys. Just go to ReADY and select ‘Reassign an Existing Key’ under ‘Access Request’. Even if someone is leaving and the new person hasn’t joined yet, just reassign the key to the department, and then reassign it over to the new person when they come on board.
