  • Custodial Services
    • The custodial team is committed to providing a clean, safe and healthy environment for the campus community. They service approximately 2,000,000 square feet of space across the breadth of more than 70 buildings. Three shifts of custodians trained in the most current environmentally sustainable products and methods move through the campus daily, cleaning and sanitizing surfaces, vacuuming, mopping, waxing, and managing waste disposal. They are also responsible for supporting campus events, which includes setup, takedown, and any preemptive or post-event cleaning.
  • Landscape & Grounds
    • A distinct team of gardening specialists, irrigation specialists, grounds workers, and equipment operators makes up the Landscape Services & Grounds team to keep Fresno State’s outdoor teaching lab in bloom. In 1979, Fresno State achieved official arboretum status, and it is this team that works diligently to keep the tree population at its optimal number and health for all to enjoy. This crew services 388 acres on the main campus and works daily in the Athletics facilities.

The Energy Services unit consists of a team of building operators and service engineers who respond to calls regarding building controls throughout the day. The unit also manages the new centralized chiller and boiler plants through energy efficient climate controls. Blending experience with established technology has put the campus in a leadership role within the Central Valley and the CSU system in the procurement of energy, energy efficiency, and energy conservation.

The Planning, Design and Construction (PDC) unit is responsible for the long and short-term campus planning and the implementation of strategic solutions for the University’s space needs. The PDC provides support for various phases of major and minor capital construction projects and auxiliary projects including both new construction and renovations occurring on campus and off-campus like the Campus Pointe development. To maximize space utilization, the unit works with university administration and faculty to develop academic space programs for the campus and other University properties, including new buildings, renovations, tenant improvements, and satellite campus facilities.
