FM Organization

Facilities Management's mission is to provide a safe, reliable and welcoming campus for the University community. 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 four main areas of service:

  • Central Services - Comprised of several teams which maintain campus grounds, manage waste, support district operations, and provide construction services. A single director guides the activities of three distinct units - U Construction, Landcare, and Waste Recovery Services.
  • District Custodial and Maintenance Operations - The largest portion of FM services are performed by the department’s five operational districts (East Bank, Health Sciences, HRA, 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.
  • Office of Sustainability - Provides direction and coordination for sustainability initiatives on the Twin Cities campus. The Office of Sustainability is a part of Facilities Management and collaborates with departments and units across campus to advance the environmental and social sustainability goals of the institution.
