Every department in Facilities provides a significant contribution to construction on campus whether it be financial, design, planning or operational. In celebration of the 25th annual Women in Construction Week, and National Women's History Month, we celebrate the women in our Facilities organization, and with our construction partners, that help us achieve success. Pictured are just some of the women in construction-related roles in Facillities.
The Office of the Vice President provides leadership to the numerous departments working together under the Facilities Organization umbrella. We coordinate efforts across our departments to ensure that the skills and resources of the Facilities Organization support the University's academic mission and our beautiful campus. We support the sustainability mission of the University as we lead efforts to steward Princeton's resources in the most efficient and effective manner. Princeton University is a unique institution and because of that we have a unique responsibility: we strive to be the best and encourage every member of the Facilities Organization to do the same.
Your friendly Service Center representatives are your central point of contact into our large organization. Just call us at (609) 258-8000, submit a service request online or email us for help. We are here from 7:30am to 5pm every weekday and ready to help you get the services and resources you need.
