Ryerson’s Facilities Management and Development (“Facilities”) oversees the development, operations and maintenance of Ryerson buildings, facilities and grounds across four million square feet of space in 40 buildings on 27 acres of land. Our diverse team works collaboratively to develop and maintain the facilities and infrastructure that enable Ryerson to conduct world-class research and provide transformative student experiences.
Our work is focussed on Ryerson’s commitment to the whole student experience and an environment that is inclusive, accessible and community-focused.
A wide range of expert knowledge
The Facilities team has a wide rage of expertise that includes real estate and land-use planning, project management, engineering and architecture, skilled trades and facilities services, energy and sustainability, and environmental health and safety.
Our team works in concert to support our mandate and leverage their combined expertise under the strategic guidance of the Campus Master Plan to support the goals and values of Ryerson University’s Strategic Vision.
We share the responsibility of good campus stewardship with the greater Ryerson community — together we continuously maintain and develop our properties and our built environment to support scholarly, research and creative activities, and promote health and wellbeing.
