Grounds is responsible for maintaining the 79 acres of property, and manages litter collection, lawn care, plant and shrub maintenance, snow removal and ice control, road and parking lot maintenance, and pest control through an outside contractor.

Submit a FAMIS service request for grounds work

All services provided by Facilities Management can be coordinated by submitting a service request through a self-serve program called FAMIS.


Snow removal & ice control

During the winter months clearing snow and ice is a priority; 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Snow and ice are cleared from the campuses as quickly and safely as possible with the resources available. Priority is assigned to the needs of the physically challenged, and to the emergency exits of residence facilities.
