Cathedral of Learning in the fall

The University of Pittsburgh, founded in 1787, is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the United States.  As one of the nation's distinguished comprehensive universities, the resources of the University constitute an invaluable asset for the intellectual, economic and social enrichment of the City of Pittsburgh and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, while being recognized internationally as a top research university.

In keeping with the University of Pittsburgh’s mission of a first class educational facility and in accordance with Facilities Management’s Guiding Principles, we strive to deliver excellence in campus stewardship, customer service, quality construction and facilities' services by leading, planning and managing the University’s facilities’ and utilities’ resources to maintain and produce healthy learning physical environments that are safe, attractive, efficient and sustainable.
We accomplish this by providing:

  • Facilities services for the Oakland Campus (grounds maintenance, refuse and custodial services)
  • Building operations and maintenance for the Oakland Campus (Utilities Group, Trades and Operating Engineers)
  • Professional engineering, architecture and construction management services to all University of Pittsburgh campuses.
