For planned equipment repairs or to arrange for a loaner freezer, please complete a workorder to Facilities Engineering.  A valid budget number is required for each workorder submitted.  Use of a loaner for defrosting, repairs or waiting for a new freezer to arrive is free for up to 4 weeks.  Loaner freezers in use for more than 4 weeks will be charged at a rate of $200 per week by Shared Resources. 

Questions regarding defrosts or repairs, please contact Facilities Engineering at x4245.

Questions regarding charges for a loaner freezer please contact Shared Resources at x5879 or email

If you need freezer space and do not have funds to purchase a freezer, the Biorespository, managed by Specimen Processing, has space available for a nominal fee.  For more information, please contact Jon Digel at x4434.
