Facilities Management

The University of Mississippi

Recycling

The University of Mississippi Facilities Management Department offers a recycling program within academic buildings and select athletics facilities across the Oxford campus. For more information, view the information sheet.

Service Station

The service station is responsible for the inspection, maintenance and repair of university vehicles and mobile equipment. Duties also include the operation of a full-service fueling station for university vehicles.

ADA Accommodations

The ADA accommodations that are addressed by the Facilities Management Department are physical barriers that hinder someone from participating in class, work or other functions that take place on the University of Mississippi campus. The task is to address and seek solutions to physical barriers as soon as they become known. Examples of solutions to physical barriers include, but are not limited to, ramp installations, restroom modifications, door modifications, door hardware replacement, elevator modifications, ADA lift installations, fire alarm modifications, telephone modifications and communication aids.

Forced Move

The Forced Move account is for departments that must be moved for reasons beyond their control. Forced moves are for upcoming renovations, space modifications, construction work, or any disruptions that are beyond the department’s control and would prevent the department from accomplishing its mission. When a department is relocated, either temporarily or permanently, it is moved to a location where it can fully or adequately fulfill its mission. The department is not charged for this type of move.

Rental of Tables and Chairs

Facilities Management has tables and chairs available for rent, and charges for pickup and delivery. If a weekend delivery is scheduled, then charges will be assessed at a two-hour minimum. If tables and chairs are picked up and returned by the organization, then there are no charges.

The safety component of this unit provides the following services to the campus community:

  • Indoor air quality
  • Asbestos assessment
  • Mold inspection/remediation
