Facilities Management is responsible for the maintenance of 87 conveyances, including 53 hydraulic elevators, 26 traction (cabled) elevators, 5 wheelchair lifts, 2 dumbwaiters and 1 stage lift.
Basic maintenance service is provided by KONE Elevator and is closely monitored by Facilities Management at all times. There is at least one State certified elevator mechanic on campus during normal UCSB working hours. Each elevator is routinely examined at least once a month by a State certified mechanic. The elevators are inspected and permitted annually by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) Elevator, Ride and Tramway Unit. Public safety is never compromised and is always our number one priority. Should you have any questions or concerns about a conveyance on campus, please call Customer Service Center at 805.893.8300.
