Maintenance and repair funding of building and building systems is the responsibility of the Physical Plant. State funding is provided for those costs associated with academic and administrative facilities. Self-liquidating facilities such as cafeterias, student dormitories, bookstore, etc., are responsible for costs of maintenance and repair.
There are exceptions to this service that fall outside the scope of ordinary maintenance and upkeep. The more common of these exceptions are minor space renovations, repair to or installation of departmental equipment, and support for departmental social functions.
