Facilities Management & Planning has the responsibility for maintaining an extensive campus that reaches 1.8 miles along Comm. Ave., and from the Charles River south into Brookline as well as the Medical Campus in Boston’s South End. Our professional groundskeepers design and maintain landscaping that ranges from the lawn behind Marsh Chapel to pocket parks from West Campus to South Campus, the raised beds and shade trees along Comm. Ave., the Talbot Green, and the plantings surrounding virtually every building.

Our Masonry Shop, with support from other trades, builds and maintains walkways, plazas, and courtyards. And the custodial staff strive to keep it all free of debris and snow. The ultimate goal is to provide an attractive and enjoyable environment for the BU community, as well as a safe and sustainable one
