Auburn Facilities Management Impact Report

We are glad you stopped by to learn more about how our team of close to 500 is dedicated to supporting Auburn University.

Facilities Management is focused on being a client-centered organization that
provides highly responsive, quality and efficient services to build and maintain
campus facilities, grounds and infrastructure.

The numbers in this report tell the story of the breadth and depth of work we
perform across campus. At the end of the day, whether it’s managing multi-million-dollar construction
projects or picking up a wayward chip bag, we work hard for the university because
we “believe in Auburn and love it.”
