"Preserving the Past, Maintaining the Present, Ensuring the Future"
The Physical Plant is responsible for the caretaking of the University grounds and facilities, including off-campus University-owned houses. In addition, we provide event set-up/take-down, perform in-house projects, and augment Office of Facilities Planning and Construction projects when Physical Plant assistance is requested.
The main campus consists of 35 buildings on 130 acres, around which are 43 rental houses owned by the University. The 35-acre River Campus is awaiting development along the Willamette River below The Bluff.
The Physical Plant is made up of a team of approximately 100 professional and devoted individuals who perform campus-care functions almost exclusively in-house. We handle mechanical, landscaping, carpentry,
painting, custodial, lock repair, vehicle repair, and support functions.
