The Physical Plant Department is housed in three different buildings on campus: the Physical Plant Building at 300 East Lindburg, Hartman Hall at 307 East Lindburg and the Landscape Building, located directly east of the Weede Building.

The Physical Plant Building contains the office of the Physical Plant Director of Custodial and General Services, as well as the administrative and accounting offices, central boiler room, automotive garage, general services, custodial services, main storeroom, and environmental safety offices. University shipping and receiving is also handled at the Physical Plant. Official weather data, including hourly temperature and precipitation readings, are recorded on instruments stationed at the Plant for the U.S. Weather Bureau.

Hartman Hall contains the office of the Physical Plant Director of Building Trades and Landscape Maintenance, as well as the departments of carpentry, painting, plumbing, electrical, electronics and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning).

The Landscape Building houses the office of the Landscape Architect and Landscape personnel. It also includes a separate greenhouse and storage facility.

One hundred eighteen people, assisted by student and seasonal employees, are employed in 14 departments of the Physical Plant that care for 34 buildings (with 1.65 million square feet of floor space) which spread over approximately the 500 acre campus. In recent years, an annual operating budget of well over three-fourth of a million dollars is used to pay for materials used on a daily basis. Over two million dollars are paid annually in salaries, and another two million dollars in utilities.
