Schools and Higher Education

The easiest tool to unify your school and university maintenance program.

Student and staff health and safety come first. When students make work requests in outdated, legacy software systems or through word-of-mouth, they often don’t see the results in time. UpKeep centralizes all of your maintenance information, so that you can continue to prioritize education and belonging. Make your software investment count by switching to UpKeep.

A simple-to-use maintenance software for schools and universities

Seamless communication between students and maintenance staff

An unlimited number of free requesters can submit work requests through a branded portal. You can assign multiple workers on a work order or make changes based on priority. Technicians can comment directly on a work order, notifying the requester of any status updates.

Prioritize student and faculty safety

Your students and faculty are your most valuable asset. Stay on top of classroom and residential space needs to ensure student and faculty needs are met. UpKeep’s checklist templates lets you assign OSHA and other health and safety building task items to technicians, so you can ensure the highest quality care for your students and faculty.

Reduce unplanned downtime costs

Ensure your boilers, chillers, electrical distribution systems, and more are in top condition by scheduling recurring work orders. Achieve maximum ROI on your equipment through following regular PMs, so you can prevent any unexpected fuse costs that can quietly pile up without a proactive work order solution.

Beautiful reports to share with faculty and administrators

UpKeep Analytics compiles stunning data visualizations showcasing the progress of maintenance activities over time. Share reports with administrators showing asset performance, labor time and cost, time to close work orders, and more.
