Scripps College fulfills Ellen Browning Scripps’ dream of “a college campus whose simplicity and beauty will unobtrusively seep into a student’s consciousness and quietly develop a standard of taste and judgment.” We aspire to provide and maintain the campus that Ellen Browning Scripps dreamed of, a campus which goes beyond the basic needs by being inviting and attractive to its students, faculty, staff, prospective students, and visitors.

We will provide the highest quality services to maintain our buildings. We strive to maintain an environment that supports the academic and administrative functions of the College, while balancing financial and technical constraints with aesthetic and historical concerns. We are dedicated to providing an attractive, clean, accessible, safe and well planned education environment to facilitate campus activities and support the goals of the College.

The Facilities Department provides maintenance and housekeeping/custodial services. The maintenance area is responsible for daily maintenance operations and facility and equipment repairs. The housekeeping area is responsible for routine custodial operations for the College and serves all of our academic and administrative buildings and the residence halls.
