Physical Plant performs the maintenance and upkeep on all mechanical, utilities, building systems and physical infrastructure and grounds of the University campus. 

Physical Plant is comprised of 120 technically-proficient and customer-focused staff members who work in a variety of skilled, mechanical and building maintenance trades. Physical Plant crews are responsible for the repair, maintenance, operation and upkeep of over 6.0 million square feet of facilities ranging in size and complexity from classrooms, research laboratories, athletic facilities, offices, libraries, residential halls and dining facilities.

We keep building, mechanical and utilities systems in good repair; make the campus a comfortable, safe and attractive place to learn, live, work and play; and respond quickly to the 24/7/365 emergency maintenance needs of the campus community. We perform routine, preventive, and corrective maintenance work, as well as elective, departmental-request work. We accomplish our work using a blend of in-house personnel supplemented by contracted service providers.

Maintenance teams are organized into four (4) geographic zones.
