Facilities Management provides services to the Uptown and Downtown campuses, including the University's residence halls. Our purview extends over the day-to-day coordination of building operations and ground maintenance, offering support for special occasions, overseeing the management of design and construction projects, orchestrating facilities and site planning, nurturing preservation initiatives, and curating spaces.

Serving as guardians of official campus mapping and comprehensive archives, we document the evolution of our buildings and grounds. Our priority, however, lies in our dedication to ensuring the safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

  • Innovative Sustainability: We pursue creative, sustainable design solutions to craft modern, functional spaces that enhance learning and work environments.
