Welcome to Facilities Management

Fall 2023

Welcome to the Fall Semester 2023! We are excited to see our campus busy again with new and returning students, faculty and staff. Facilities Management has spent much of the summer working on projects and plans related to Cal Poly academic programs and prioritized maintenance. Our grounds crew has focused on tree management and the Refuse & Recycling team is eager to start our new on-site compost program early this Fall.


Keys and Building Access

The beginning of each semester is always very impacted as we get over 1,000 key requests. Please be patient as we process these requests; we strive to complete requests within 5 business days or less. 

Keys and access cards may be picked up at Facilities Management, Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm. Only the individual assigned on the authorization form can pick up the key or access card and must provide a valid photo ID. Please return key and/or access cards to our office once it is no longer needed.

For the safety of our campus community, please remember that only authorized keyholders are allowed into locked spaces without supervision. You should never unlock a door for anyone that is not a keyholder. Likewise, exterior doors should never be propped open.

Process for Staff and Faculty Leaving Employment with Humboldt: Please remember to bring all your keys to the Cashier's office when you check out on the last day of employment. For your convenience, please email Facilities Management Keys at fmkeys@humboldt.edu at least 24 hours before your separating date, and we will then send you an email listing all hard keys and keycards that are still issued to you. You will need to bring all your keys with you to turn into the Cashier's office on your last day on campus.


FM Cost Recovery Policy Update for Campus Chargebacks

The Facilities Management Cost Recovery Policy was revised, adopted by the University Senate, and signed by President Jackson in July 2021. This was in accordance with direction from Cal Poly Humboldt Leadership to reduce the number of internal chargebacks across campus. The non-billable services you've come to expect from FM are still the same, but this philosophy has been extended to include other routine work to maintain and support state owned facilities and assets as nonbillable too. Please see the Policy on the Cal Poly Humboldt Policy page, or call x4475 or email fmservice@humboldt.edu if you have questions.


 If you have questions, please contact our Customer Service Center via fmservice@humboldt.edu or call 707-826-3646 M-F, 8am-4:30pm. We are in the office!
