Welcome to the website for University Services at the University of Minnesota.

The departments and people in University Services deliver the non-academic operations across the University of Minnesota system. We are responsible for creating and sustaining the places and the spaces that support the teaching, research, and outreach missions of the University. Simply put, University Services is the people behind the scenes who help ensure the University functions each and every day. We house our students, serve the food, heat and cool buildings, care for our grounds, build and renovate facilities, plan the future of our campuses, and work to create a more environmentally sustainable university. The purpose and mission of our team is that we make the University work.

University Services' units (Auxiliary Services; Capital Project Management; Facilities Management; Planning, Space, and Real Estate; and Sustainability) are supported by the Management Services team and are committed to providing efficient and effective services to our partners across the University. Our 3,700 employees (including 2,000 student workers) are dedicated to the highest standards of excellence, integrity, accountability, and stewardship. We take great pride in supporting one of the world’s most renowned public research universities.

Please contact our office if you have questions or need additional information.  We look forward to serving you.

Alice Roberts-Davis
Vice President, University Services
