Health Services

South Plains College offers all full-time students taking at least six (6) semester hours on the Levelland Campus a medical treatment center with the services of a licensed physician and a registered nurse. Qualified students needing to see a doctor should go to the Health Services Office before 10:30 a.m. to complete records and make an appointment.

The office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Physician’s hours are limited to one or two hours per day, Monday through Thursday. Times are posted at the clinic.

Access Fobs

Residents will be issued an access fob to enter outside doors of residence halls (when applicable). Residents must report all misplaced access fobs immediately to the Residence Life Office, for deactivation. Students who misplace or lose their access fobs are charged a $25.00 fee for a replacement. Any problems with an access fob should be reported to the Hall Director or Residence Life Office. Any student found using another student’s fob for building access will be subject to disciplinary action.

Residents should carry their access fob with them at all times. Residents who are locked out of their room should contact their Hall Director or the on-call Resident Assistant from the number posted in the hall.

Residents failing to turn in their fobs at the time of checkout will be charged the replacement fee.

Duplication of College keys/fobs is prohibited. Possession of College keys/fobs other than those assigned is not permitted.

Laundry Rooms

Laundry machines are located in all halls and are for resident use only. Do not leave items unattended, and/or overload machines. The College is not responsible for laundry that is lost, damaged or stolen. Abuse of laundry machines only aggravates whatever problem the machine may have and is prohibited. Please report machine malfunctions to the Hall Director immediately.

Mail Service and Delivery

Mail and packages are delivered to the SPC Mail Room located in the Student Center.  Residents are responsible for leaving forwarding addresses with the mail room.

Students receiving mail and packages will be contacted by the mail room via their SPC email account. Once notified, the student will be required to pick up their mail or package(s) in the mail room. Any package shipped to an on-campus resident should be addressed to:

Resident Name
South Plains College
1401 South College Ave.
Name of Residence Hall & Room Number
Levelland, TX 79336

Maintenance or Repairs

Maintenance requests or other room concerns should be reported to the Hall Director in a timely manner during office hours or via email. For emergency repairs, contact a staff member immediately. Emergency repairs can include, but are not limited to: electrical issues, heating or air conditioning issues, or plumbing issues.

Residence hall staff encourage reporting of maintenance problems early and with as much detail as possible. Maintenance personnel work between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays and may not always be able to arrive at hours most convenient to students.  If problems persist continue to communicate that to the hall director.

Storage

Storage is not available. All furniture must remain in the room. No space is available for students who wish to store belongings over the summer or while they are not enrolled. Temporary storage may be provided to students assigned to overflow housing at the beginning of each semester but is not guaranteed.

Vacuum Cleaners

Vacuum cleaners may be checked out from the Hall Director in each hall. Residents are required to leave some form of ID at the desk to use a vacuum. Due to the limited number of vacuums available, students must return vacuum cleaners within the hour. Please notify Hall Director if a vacuum is not working properly.

Vending Machines

Vending machines are located in all halls. Abuse of vending machines only aggravates whatever problem the machine may have and is prohibited. Please report machine malfunctions to the number listed on the machine.
