Facilities Management

The Office of Facilities Management is responsible for the planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance for all of the properties that serve the Homewood-based schools.  This office coordinates service requests and dispatches the appropriate tradesman to perform the necessary work.

Request for Services

Department administrators can request service using an online request form or by phone.  The Facilities Management office asks that you notify them of emergency services by phone rather than online.  Non-emergency requests can be made using the online form.  You will need to specify whether the request is routine or billable (and, if it is billable, you will need to provide a budget number).  A description of routine vs billable services can be found on their website at "Do I have to pay for my service request?"

Custodial Services

Custodians are on duty 24/7, except for holidays.  Individual office spaces are generally serviced once per week; common areas are serviced daily.  You may need to contact Custodial Services directly for urgent needs (replacing toilet paper or paper towels in a restroom or for spill clean-up, for example).  Please see phone number below, in "Contacts."

Custodial Services is also charged with supplying general pool classrooms with chalk or dry erase markers and erasers.  If you receive a report that a general pool classroom in your area is lacking any of these supplies, you will need to call Custodial Services to ask them to replenish the supply. 

Recycling and Sustainability

The JHU Recycling Program coordinates all recycling efforts on campus, and can provide your area with additional recycling bins if necessary.  They can also provide large recycling totes if your office is purging non-sensitive papers.  They accept mixed paper, cardboard, aluminum, glass, plastic (#1-7), computers and other electronics, cell phones, toner and inkjet cartridges, CFL bulbs, and batteries.  Please see their website for specific information on how to recycle each of these materials.

The Sustainability Initiative has launched a program to compost food wastes across campus.  Dedicated composting bins have been placed at the food court in Levering, the Alkimia café in Gilman, and in the pantry areas of select buildings on campus.  More information about recycling and sustainability can be found on their website.

Lab Safety

Johns Hopkins University is one of the world's premier research universities, and conducting research safely is a key part of that leadership. All KSAS affiliates who conduct experimental or field research involving chemical, physical, biological, or radiological measurements should plan and perform their work with a focus on research safety. A portal to all JHU laboratory safety policies, information, and training may be found at Homewood Campus Laboratory Safety
