The team is entrusted with the care and maintenance of Virginia Tech’s campuses in Blacksburg, Roanoke, and the greater Washington, D.C., metro area and the university’s research and agricultural facilities located throughout the commonwealth.

With over 300 personnel, the team is responsible for the oversight of facility services in a responsive, efficient, consistent, and courteous manner, providing all campus constituents with quality service and a safe, clean, and aesthetically pleasing environment, while efficiently managing expenses, maximizing service levels, and achieving aspirational standards.
