Introduction to University Facilities
University Facilities is responsible for the planning, design, and construction; plant operations; environmental health and safety; and transportation services for Drexel University's three campuses: University City Campus, Center City Campus, and Queen Lane Campus.
The department also provides maintenance services (cleaning, landscaping, utilities, conservation programs, safety and emergency response, preventative maintenance, waste removal, recycling, etc.) as cost effectively as possible, while aiming to implement proven sustainable practices – striving to preserve campus facilities while creating an environment that will attract, keep, and support the best and brightest students, faculty, and professional staff.
Through development and oversight of design and construction guidelines, University Facilities is able to improve the overall aesthetic character and visual unity of Drexel's campuses while meeting academic programmable space needs.
