Facilities Services

Facilities Services maintains and improves more than 35 buildings that make up Winona State University’s campus.

Not only do we manage buildings, but also landscaping, electricity, motor vehicles, and more.

View Current Projects

We’re proud of our efforts to meet the needs of this vibrant campus. We manage everything from a fleet of 60 state vehicles to thousands of pieces of mail to generation and distribution of 170,000,000 kBTUs of energy.

Sustainability is a core, university-wide commitment at WSU. From our continued focus on resource stewardship to our sustainability minor to our student led Green Action Projects, WSU strives to be green in every way possible. In addition, we have led the initiative to plant at least one of all Minnesota tree species on campus and are caretakers of 95 campus gardens.

We would like to recognize and acknowledge that Winona State University is situated on the ancestral lands of the Dakota people. We acknowledge and honor the Dakota Nations and the sacred land of all indigenous peoples.
