Abstract

Facilities and Services provides the physical environment and related services, which will best serve the primary objectives of the university. This collection is composed of material on campus security, central mailing, parking and traffic, and miscellaneous items published by or for the department.

Historical Note

Physical Plant is a service organization established for the sole purpose of providing the physical environment and related services, which will best serve the primary objectives of the university. The Physical Plant operates on a budget derived from an annual allotment of state appropriated funds, charges from services and supplies furnished to certain departments or activities, and the allocation of maintenance and repair funds by the Board of Regents for specific projects.

The services furnished by Physical Plant are the operation, maintenance, repair and remodeling of university buildings and grounds, and the operation and repair of certain types of equipment. Services include custodial service in academic, administrative and some research buildings, central mailing, U.S. mail delivery, moving service, security service, trash collection and disposal, key and lock service, pest control, utilities operation and maintenance, building and land inventory management, setups for special events, facilities engineering, liaison between the university and other organizations concerned with new construction, maintenance and repair and remodeling projects.

The Physical Plant changed its name to Facilities and Services in 2008.

Contents Note

The central mailing information details how to use central mailing service and gives guidelines for mail deposited with them. The miscellaneous published items include information on campus buildings, land, utilities, streets, parking lots and maintenance.
