Facilities Management

The Facilities Management unit provides integrated, quality and cost-effective facility services in support of the College community, enabling the campus to fulfill its educational, research and public service responsibilities. The mission of the organization is to plan, design, construct and maintain safe and highly functional buildings and grounds for SUNY Cortland students, faculty, staff and guests. In addition, the Environmental Health and Safety Office is charged with maintaining a safe and healthful environment to support the campus's mission, while ensuring compliance with applicable federal, state and local regulations.

We are committed to continually improving our services and methods to meet the ever-changing needs of the campus and welcome your suggestions on how we might better serve the campus community.
