Office of Facilities

The mission of the Office of Facilities is to ensure that the buildings and grounds of Brooklyn College continue to be as efficient and beautiful as when the college campus was constructed in 1930.

Composed of 15 buildings spread over 35 acres, the campus is one of the largest in the City University of New York. The office and its highly skilled staff renovate and refurbish classrooms, laboratories, and offices. They safeguard the original architectural splendor of the Brooklyn College Library while, at the same time, installing the latest technology and academic research services. The office’s grounds crew cultivates the landscaped grounds and attends to the health of the campus’ many plantings and garden features.
