Facilities Management

Western Illinois University Facilities Management employs full-time professional, technical, clerical, and trades personnel. The workforce expands by utilizing temporary workers and students during crucial summer maintenance activities. The mission of Facilities Management is to maintain and enhance the campus physical environment in support of academic and other related functions of the university.

We provide this support through two distinct operating units.

Facilities Maintenance & Operations

Consisting of five divisions, Facilities Maintenance & Operations provides custodial services, landscape maintenance, building maintenance, mechanical maintenance, maintenance of campus utility infrastructure and heating plant operations.

Facilities Planning & Construction

Consisting of three primary functions, Facilities Planning & Construction oversees in-house construction and modification efforts, selects and manages external engineering resources for studies and design, and coordinates with the State Capital Development Board on all major capital construction projects on campus.
