The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance on the maintenance of the university's elevator equipment. Elevators are one of the safest means of automated transportation and are essential in creating an accessible campus environment. They are comprised of mechanical and electrical components which require routine maintenance and adjustments. Through proper operation and routinely scheduled maintenance, the equipment will function for long periods of time without disruption of service. If the equipment is improperly operated, or does not receive the required maintenance, its useful life will be foreshortened and it will most likely be out of service for long periods of time.
Authorized Longwood employees may attach materials to elevator surfaces in order to protect the elevator.
Service and repairs to non-essential elevators will occur during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the exception of trapped occupants. Failure of essential elevators will be responded to twenty-four (24) hours a day.
