Facilities Operations

Welcome to Facilities Operations at the University of Rhode Island. Our Mission is to efficiently and effectively manage University resources to ensure an environment and infrastructure that support the teaching, research and outreach mission of the University.

We are a service organization and we strive to provide outstanding support for the students, staff and visitors that utilize our buildings and grounds. We feel we are an integral component of the education process, and that our contribution to provide an environment that enhances teaching and learning is significant to the URI experience.
