The Facilities Management Department (FMD) is a top-performing service provider that enhances the customer experience; and we ensure that the campus environment is clean, safe, and well-maintained. FMD is responsible for the planning, design, construction, maintenance and repair of university facilities and grounds, and consists of 15 critical and interdependent support teams:
Campus Planning initiates and develops projects, plans and studies needed to create the physical space required to implement CSUMB’s academic mission. Staff regularly collaborate with campus and community stakeholders in order to redevelop the campus and the former Fort Ord into a vibrant and thriving community. Fundamental to our work is the integration of the three tenets of sustainability, identified by the campus as they relate to physical space as: placemaking, stewardship and partnership.
Space Planning is responsible for the allocation and tracking of all spaces within state-owned facilities. Part of this responsibility includes working with departments to better utilize existing spaces using state mandated standards. The team also oversees the procurement of furniture, signage and ergonomic furnishings.
Design includes management of architectural services for renovations or new construction projects. The University Architect oversees the major/minor capital project design and overall campus development to ensure that it complies with the Master Plan, SUAM, ADA and regulatory building codes and guidelines.

This team provides plan and constructability review, initial estimates, facilitates agency approvals and implements Chancellor’s Office policy and procedures for construction administration of projects.
