Facilities Management

The mission of Facilities Management is to provide and maintain physical facilities which meet the current and future needs of the Grinnell College community, in support of the overall mission of the College.  Facilities Management supervises all construction projects; provides maintenance and custodial services on all facilities and oversees the campus heating, cooling, water and electrical systems; provides environmental and safety compliance; and also manages rental property, carpool, keys, and grounds, including set-ups.

Heating Plant

Grinnell College's heating plant provides warmth to more than 60 buildings on campus, including 19 residence halls. Until 2002, this served as both the heating and cooling plant for the College. The cooling function was moved, and the heating expanded to add capacity for the Joe Rosenfield Campus Center and East Campus residence halls.
