Under no circumstances should service requests should be made directly to UWA Facilities Management. Requests to FM will be made by the BSS Team, on behalf of the service requestor if required.

The BSS service desk can be contacted via bss-ecm@uwa.edu.au.

Anyone seeking to perform works to any of the Faculty assigned facilities must liaise with BSS before attempting any works.

Office space allocation

To submit a request for office space or a change in your allocated space, email: space-ecm@uwa.edu.au.

Office furnishing

The Faculty is committed to providing standard office furnishings to an acceptable standard for all staff. Specific furniture above this standard, or for specialist requirements, such as outfitting research labs or facilities must be funded by the requesting group. All office furniture should be procured by the BSS team to ensure it is completed in a strategic manner and adheres to Faculty requirements. Any persons looking to purchase additional furnishings or to have furniture centrally provisioned or replaced should contact the BSS team via the service desk.
