Facilities and Services

Our Mission

Facilities & Services is here to serve the University Community by maintaining the existing campus and supporting the expansion and growth of campus through project management and support. Our ultimate goal is a campus that is safe, attractive and supports the mission of South Dakota State University.

We employ a workforce of employees trained in every principal trade required for facilities maintenance, repair, alteration, construction, or service. These employees can respond to urgent or specialized needs and provide continuity of basic maintenance and repair programs. They also offer a timely and flexible response to renovation projects of moderate or limited scope. We also have staff available to support growth on campus through project management, coordination and future planning.

We take pride in maintaining and improving the campus community to provide a learning and working space for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Our values show in everything we do: Knowledge, Accountability, Respect, Flexibility & Vision. We will get the job done!

Take a look at our Project Map for more information on construction projects on campus. Please note the map is best observed in Firefox or Chrome browsers.

If you have any questions about the services we offer, please visit our Services Pages, reach out to us via email or phone.
