The Physical Plant operates on a budget derived from an annual allotment of state appropriated funds, charges from services and supplies furnished to certain departments or activities, and the allocation of maintenance and repair funds by the Board of Regents for specific projects.

The services furnished by Physical Plant are the operation, maintenance, repair and remodeling of university buildings and grounds, and the operation and repair of certain types of equipment. Services include custodial service in academic, administrative and some research buildings, central mailing, U.S. mail delivery, moving service, security service, trash collection and disposal, key and lock service, pest control, utilities operation and maintenance, building and land inventory management, setups for special events, facilities engineering, liaison between the university and other organizations concerned with new construction, maintenance and repair and remodeling projects.

The Physical Plant changed its name to Facilities and Services in 2008.
