WHAT IS INCLUDED IN FF&E?

Movable furniture, fixtures or other equipment that have no permanent connection to the structure of a building or utilities.  Examples include (but not limited to) chairs, desks, tables, cabinets, rack, and shelf units, bookcases, whiteboards, exterior furniture, office machines, computers, audio and visual equipment, lab equipment, appliances, shop equipment, and electric carts. 

Supplies/consumable items are considered non-equipment items and therefore not included in FF&E.  This would include items that would be replaced frequently, easily broken or damaged.  These items would generally be replaced rather than repaired and individually cost less than $500.  




The FF&E team can assist you with the following: 

  • Procurement of FF&E items 

  • New furniture designs and installation

  • Old furniture disposal

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can My Broken Furniture Be Replaced?


Yes, we are here to assist with broken furniture replacement.  We can look into filing a warranty claim and may have something (new or used) on hand that can be delivered quickly.   Keep in mind, we’ll need time to research the warranty and file a claim, or make a new purchase.  

I Am Not Happy With The Arrangement Of The Furniture In My Office, Can It Be Moved? 


No, new furniture installation has been designed and layout to meet ADA requirements and accessibility clearances.  Additional design services are not available. If you still require further assistance, please refer to your department dean.  

Can My Lighting, Carpet And/Or Blinds Be Replaced? 


If your building's lights or carpet are damaged and in need of a replacement or repair, please contact the maintenance department.  Upgrades to carpet and blinds are not completed individually.
