To maintain facilities, perform related services and provide responsible stewardship of the University of Vermont's physical assets in support of the University's mission.
Physical Plant is comprised of 120 staff members in a variety of operational units and crews. Our technically-proficient and customer-focused staff are responsible for the repair, maintenance, operation and upkeep of over 6.0 million square feet of buildings and over 450 acres of grounds. The facilities we maintain range in size and complexity from teaching areas, research laboratories, athletic areas, offices, residential halls, dining halls and libraries. Our staff keep all building, mechanical and utilities operating systems in good repair; make the campus a comfortable, safe and attractive place to learn, live, work and play; and respond quickly to the emergency maintenance and repair needs of the campus community. We perform routine, preventive, and corrective maintenance work, as well as elective, departmental-request work. Physical Plant accomplishes its mission using a blend of in-house personnel and contracted service providers.
