                                                                      Student keys must be mailed in a padded or Tyvek-like envelope (most Post Offices have them in stock) to lessen the risk of the key ripping out of an ordinary envelope. Any students who left their keys in their rooms should notify the Student Life Office.

                                                                      The faculty and staff of the Deerfield community can place a work order by using the SchoolDude online request form. After you submit your work order, you will receive an acknowledgment email, and you will be notified about progress on your work order up to its completion.

                                                                      If students require assistance due to problems such as broken glass or electrical issues, then they should call the physical plant desk at (413) 774-1572 (extension 1572). The physical plant handles all problems relating to Deerfield’s buildings. If you are locked out of your room, please do not call physical plant, but instead be in touch with security at (413) 772-9880.
