If education is to flourish, the University buildings and grounds must be attractive, clean, safe, and energy efficient. Our goal is to provide excellence in service and maintain the campus and facilities at the high standard that is exemplified by the Miami tradition of excellence.

Through the efforts of over 500 dedicated employees, the department maintains 2500 acres of grounds and approximately eight million square feet of building area. Included in this maintenance effort are approximately 9000 trees, 76 acres of parking area, and 32 miles of walks. The department consists of Planning Architecture, and Engineering, Operations, Utility Enterprise Auxiliary, Environmental Health & Safety Office, the Airport, and the Goggin Ice Center and Rec Sports. The Department also assists in the maintenance and operation of the Hamilton, Middletown, and Voice of America regional campuses.
