In order to improve consistency across campus and beyond, Campus Facilities and Sustainability, Capital Projects and Real Estate and Environmental Health and Safety have merged into one service-oriented department.

The creation of a new website that will reflect this change is underway! It will amalgamate content from this site, as well as from:

Maintance and Operations Maintenance & Operations

Operation Experts

Do you need equipment repaired, painted, patched, electrified, or plumbed? Our large contingent of skilled workers continuously monitors the campus to ensure that it runs smoothly and trouble-free. When equipment needs fixing or you need to consult on how or where to get something repaired, call on M&O.

We look after heating and cooling the campus, especially during spring and fall transitions.

Keeping classrooms, labs and all public spaces working and hazard-free for faculty, staff and students is another important goal for Maintenance & Operations.

M&O is responsible for the operation of all campus buildings, infrastructure and base-building systems. The maintenance of lab or department-specific equipment, however, is the responsibility of the department owning or using the equipment. If you are unsure whether the equipment in your area is maintained by Maintenance & Operations, we encourage you to contact our Helpdesk by calling 416-979-5091 or

Groundskeeping and CustodialCustodial & Groundskeeping


This team of custodians and groundskeepers keeps us clean and tidy every day. Staff can be seen tending the campus both indoors and out. We do the gardening, take out the garbage, recycle everything we can – including batteries – and clean every type of room or space.

These are also the folks to call when you need an event set up or furniture and equipment moved from one place on campus to another.

If you are planning a special event, our experienced staff will make the whole project easier to set up.

Our service level expectations, including the Nightly Cleaning Schedule and the Custodial Cleaning Standards are available for reference.
