About

Facilities Management and Campus Operations support the Wright State University mission and vision through planning and maintenance of the campus infrastructure and environment. We serve as stewards of the university’s physical and natural resources and aim to enhance the experience of students, faculty, staff, and visitors with user-focused design and safe, sustainable practices.

Facilities Management and Campus Operations includes the following departments and offices:

Bookstore

The Wright State Bookstore is operated by Barnes & Noble College, our campus partner since 1992. The bookstore is located in the Student Union on the main level. A portion of all sales through the Wright State Bookstore goes back to Wright State to help keep tuition and fees low.

Design and Construction

Design and Construction supports the university community by providing project management for all new construction, renovation, and infrastructure upgrade projects on the Dayton Campus, Lake Campus and all off-campus facilities. FMS Administration services include project design and review, code and procedure compliance, cost estimating, construction bidding, and award of contracts. Project management includes assurance of quality construction through on-site management, compliance with plans, specifications, and building codes, and the management of project budgets and schedules. If you have questions about current projects, please email the corresponding project manager or send a message to construction@wright.edu

Environmental Health and Safety

The Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) serves to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all students, employees, and visitors to Wright State University in support of the university’s overall mission.

  • EHS works to protect human health and reduce the university’s impact on the environment.
  • EHS develops programs and policies designed to meet or exceed compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and guidelines.
  • EHS provides unparalleled customer service to the university and surrounding community.
  • EHS accomplishes these goals through a comprehensive environmental health and safety management system.

Facilities Operations

Facilities Operations is comprised of approximately 190 very dedicated and talented men and women that take care of the many custodial, grounds, maintenance, and energy-related duties at both Wright State campuses and several outlying buildings.

Our mission statement reads "…a service-oriented organization committed to meeting the needs of students, faculty, and staff." We exist simply to meet the University's needs and to help create the best possible educational environment. We strive to do this, within our means and abilities, every day.
