As we go through the waves of construction at Lake Michigan College, it is important to us that we meet your needs to keep our campus clean and functioning properly! The best way to let us know that something needs repair in the midst of the campus transformation is utilizing our maintenance management system called Maintenance Connection.

If you are logged into the college network you are also logged into Maintenance Connection. Go to this link on the LMC Faculty & Staff web page or SharePoint anytime to access this user-friendly system! Be sure to tell us when you need the request completed, identify where you are and tell us what the problem you are having or need assistance with. You will be able to check on the status of your request and add photographs and other document attachments if your request is more complex.

If there is an immediate need for assistance, we ask that you contact our main office number at 269-927-8135, so that you can be assisted immediately.
