What We Do
The Department of the Facilities Management and Planning is located at 120 Ashford Street. Under the administration of the Vice President for Operations, Associate Vice President Thomas Daley directs a team of over 900 facilities staff on both the Charles River Campus and Boston University Medical Campus.
We operate around the clock to maintain over 400 University buildings and facilities on both campuses. Our routine maintenance includes responding to emergencies, monitoring energy use, renovations and improvements, cleaning buildings and office space, snow removal, and landscaping maintenance. We are responsible for the year-long effort to prepare for the influx of over 25,000 people on Commencement weekend and the overnight task of cleaning 720 student rooms for visiting alumni and parents.
We also provide planning, design, and construction services for new buildings and facilities in need of renovation. Our expert staff are committed to developing energy-efficient and environmentally friendly facilities that provide a comfortable and effective environment for living, working, teaching, learning, researching, and having fun on campus.
