Facilities Operations

To ensure long-term stewardship of the environment, grounds and physical facilities by managing and operating buildings, grounds, infrastructure and utilities, and performing related services to enable their productive use and enjoyment by present and future students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the public.

We appreciate your calls, especially when you notice problems such as spills, broken items, strange odors, leaks, etc. Your eyes, ears and noses help us to become aware of any issues and be able to better maintain the campus safely and effectively.

Facilities requests

Facilities Operations has a new web-based method to request service, which we hope you will find efficient and convenient.

The Facilities Request link may be used from your personal cellular device. This will enable some great features, like the ability to include a photo of what you are requesting to be serviced. WSU network authentication will be required via Okta.
