About FM

Facilities Management's mission is to provide a safe, reliable and welcoming campus for learning and discovery. We are responsible for the physical assets of the University to ensure a quality environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors in support of the University’s mission of teaching, research and outreach.

FM is divided into three main areas of service:

  • Central Services - Comprised of several teams, the unit’s primary purpose is to support FM districts. A single director guides the activities of distinct units, ranging from Landcare to Waste Abatement.
     
  • District Custodial and Maintenance Operations - The largest portion of FM services are performed by the department’s five operational districts (East Bank, Health Sciences, North Campus, St. Paul, and West Bank). These cross-functional teams are primarily responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of buildings in their geographical area, with additional support provided by Central Services and Energy Management.
     
  • Energy Management - Maintains the infrastructure necessary to heat, cool and light the Twin Cities campus, and lead campus energy conservation efforts to help reduce the University’s carbon footprint.
