IMPORTANT:  Beloit College testing its emergency alert system today, Wednesday, January 28 (Read more.)



Office and furniture moves must be arranged a minimum of two weeks in advance.

Physical Plant will evaluate the items to be moved to determine if our staff will have the time or ability to safely complete your move request. If we are not able to accommodate your move, we will provide you with an area moving company name for you to contact.

Please keep in mind that when packing boxes to be moved, that if they are too heavy for you to lift and move, they are too heavy for Physical Plant staff to move and will not be moved. Physical Plant does not pack or unpack boxes. Items for office moves will be only furniture, boxes and individual computer components.

Our staff will not disconnect or reconnect computer equipment. You will need to contact Information Services and Resources(I.S.R.), extension 2067, to assist you with the disconnect and reconnect of your computer.


Requests for door and desk nameplates should be submitted by work request to be sure the name is legible. If the nameplate is for a desk, please indicate if a holder is needed. Material costs must be approved in advance by the Department Head/Chair. An account number is required when ordering.


Physical Plant will only deliver packages weighing 50 pounds and over. 
Those packages weighing under 50 pounds are the responsibility of each department.


Due to limited storage facilities and to eliminate waste of unused paint, color choices are now limited to thirteen (13) colors as chosen and approved by Senior Staff. All campus painting must be completed by Physical Plant or an approved contractor.

Color samples can be viewed at the Physical Plant office.


A twenty-four hour notice for Physical Plant assistance with deliveries is required. If a call is received without prior notice, we can supply you with a dolly if available. Physical Plant available hours for deliveries (Monday through Friday) are as follows:

7:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
12:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.


If you require Physical Plant's assistance in the assembly of new office furniture, a work request must be submitted. Your request will be scheduled based on availability of personnel.

Beloit College has very limited storage space. Physical Plant will move unused furniture / equipment but you are responsible for locating a new home for your unwanted furniture / equipment.
