Hi, I'm Paul, Building Manager for Leverett and DeWolfe. Read the following carefully since issues such as building maintenance and lockouts are handled by the Harvard Real Estate Services (HRES), not me. If you still have questions, you can email me or stop by. Remember to give me your room number and description of your problem as well. We try to resolve problems quickly and efficiently so the more information, the better for you and me. Enjoy your time here.

Best, Paul E-mail: Phone: (617-49)5-2277 Building Manager's Office Hours: Building Manager = 8AM-4:30PM, Security Guard = 4PM-8AM (Mon-Fri); Security Guard = 5PM-7AM (Weekends)


  1. I have maintenance issues. Who do I contact? Submit a repair request here.
  2. My network connection isn't working. Can I get it fixed? Visit
  3. How do I deal with pest problems? If you find cockroaches, ants, or other insects in your suite, the first thing to do is find the source that is attracting them. Make sure that absolutely all perishables are in sealed containers, that there are no spills or crumbs on the floor or empty unwashed beverage bottles. Return all dishes to the Dining Hall. If the problem persists, report it to Paul Hegarty at 5-2277.
  4. Do you have any advice for Do-It-Yourself maintenance? The College must insist that all maintenance be handled through the Building Manager's office. Even well-meaning do-it-yourself maintenance can cause serious damage and liabilities. For example, using over-the-counter caustic drain cleaners to open clogged drains can damage pipes and be a threat to the safety of maintenance personnel.
