Facilities Services develops and maintains an exceptional physical environment that supports the students, faculty, researchers and staff of The University of Texas at Austin. See the list of services (EID required) we provide to the university.

To provide services that create an exceptional environment, Facilities Services is organized in the following five divisions:

Administrative and Personnel Services

The Administrative and Personnel Services division supports the staff members of Facilities Services and Project Management and Construction Services by ensuring they have strong leadership and are well trained and safe. The division is made up of three units: Personnel, Training and Safety. The Personnel section handles issues such as payroll, workers compensation, time sheets and leave management. The Training unit supports employee development and coordinates a variety of workshops that help employees learn how to provide the best service, feel confident performing daily tasks, and prepare for future responsibilities. The Safety unit promotes safe, healthy work practices through employee training and awareness initiatives.

Business Services

The Business Services division provides timely accounting and purchasing assistance to Facilities Services and the entire Campus Planning and Facilities Management portfolio. The division is organized in two main units: Accounting and Central Stores. The Accounting unit provides voucher, billing, record keeping, and financial reporting services. The Central Stores unit functions like a local home-improvement center and provides purchasing, material acquisition, material issue, and warehouse operations services.

Custodial Services

The Custodial Services division provides cleaning services and related services to the university. Custodial staff is responsible for over 11.8 million square feet of building space on the main campus. Services provided include cleaning and supplying restrooms, floor cleaning, window washing, emptying of trash and recycling containers, dusting, wall cleaning, chalkboard cleaning and replacement of chalk in classrooms, and locking and unlocking of buildings. Custodial Services also provides linens for special events.

Facilities Operations and Maintenance

The Facilities Operations and Maintenance division maintains, repairs, and oversees the assessment of the buildings and mechanical systems of the university. The division employs more than 200 experienced administrative personnel and technicians who respond to the heating/cooling, general repairs, and preventive maintenance needs of the campus. Facilities Operations and Maintenance manages the university's Energy and Water Conservation Program (EWC). To efficiently meet these needs, the division is organized into units that have campus-wide responsibilities and into specific zone shops and specialized maintenance shops.

J. J. Pickle Research Campus (PRC)

PRC is the university's premiere research facility. Facilities Services' Operations and Maintenance, Construction, and Support Services divisions provide staff and services to PRC, and Custodial Services oversees contracted cleaning services. Support Services' Surplus Property and Furniture Renovation units are located on PRC. Learn more about PRC.

Support Services

The Support Services division is organized into four branches: Recycling & Sustainability, Landscape Services, Event and Moving Services, and Customer Relations & Communications. Recycling & Sustainability provides the campus with surplus property services, recycling and waste collection, lock and key services and furniture restoration. This group also coordinates fleet and equipment for Facilities Services. Landscape Services maintains more than 440 acres of grounds, countless plant beds and shrubs, and about 4,900 trees, while also providing litter pick up, pest control, irrigation, and street and sidewalk cleaning services. Event & Moving Services helps coordinate the set up and break down for events and provides various rental items, such as tables and chairs. Moving staff assist with transporting office furniture and other items. Customer Relations & Communications raises awareness about Facilities Services and PMCS issues and activities and releases timely information about both departments to internal and external audiences.
