 UNM Facts

The Physical Plant Department (PPD) is primarily responsible for the care and upkeep of over 10 million square feet of facilities and 680 acres of open space. Maintaining the physical environment on a campus this size requires a lot of planning and consistent diligence to protect and maintain the physical environment of the campus. It is PPD’s goal to provide a safe, beautiful, functional, comfortable, clean, and sustainable environment for the campus community.


The Physical Plant Department’s mission is to consistently deliver effective programs and efficient facility service based on sustainable and collaborative outcomes aligned with the University of New Mexico’s core mission.


The Physical Plant Department’s vision is that our community, state, and national peers will recognize the University of New Mexico’s Physical Plant Department as a leader in campus sustainability and facilities stewardship.
