The Department of Facilities Management is responsible for ensuring that the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of all university facilities and grounds support the academic, research, and administrative functions of the University, while balancing financial and technical constraints with aesthetic and historical concerns.
In Providence, the University owns and maintains 226 buildings, totaling approximately 6,800,000 gross square feet. In addition to the operations, maintenance and repair of these existing facilities, we are responsible for the planning, design, and construction management of renovations and new facilities.
Our mission is to support the University by enhancing the quality of physical facilities. We do this through planning, designing, engineering, constructing, and maintaining in a responsive, service-oriented, effective, and environmentally-conscious manner.
