The mission of Facilities Services is to provide high quality maintenance and repair services to the academic campus, including 14 major academic and administrative buildings (funded by State General Funds) and several quasi-auxiliary and auxiliary buildings (funded by a charge-back basis for selected services agreed to through Memoranda of Understanding each year).
Facilities Services (FS) is responsible for maintaining the grounds and ensuring they meet high aesthetic and sustainability standards, in keeping with SF State's overall culture and educational mission. Facilities provides for smooth day-to-day operations of campus facilities and grounds as well as the Central Utilities Plant that provides all campus utilities- water and heat, electricity, and sewage services- to the academic campus. The division values safety, comfort and efficiency, and strives to respond quickly to routine maintenance issues that arise, as well as to building-related or campus emergencies.
The division is a major participant in SF State's Emergency Preparedness planning, partnering with the University Police Department (UPD), Environmental Health & Safety, Parking, and many other campus units as needed to respond to incidents and continue critical campus operations.
