These efforts include, but are not limited to, being knowledgeable about building codes and the Americans with Disabilities Act, identifying accessibility barriers, bringing non-compliant facilities and spaces up to code, responding to the requests of campus constituents, and being aware of accessibility best practices and emerging technologies.
Facilities and Property Management (FPM) funds the maintenance and repair of campus facilities, spaces and building systems in academic buildings and spaces. This work includes such things as repairing broken automatic door openers, sidewalks, ramps, elevators and removing trip hazards. FPM also funds projects that are required by city, state and federal codes, regulations and other laws. To contact FPM, please click here or call 503-725-3738.
Individual departments and schools that wish to increase or enhance accessibility beyond what currently exists are encouraged to do so using funds under their control. The Capital Projects and Construction (CPC) department will provide an estimate for desired work and will manage the project if the department chooses to proceed. To contact CPC, please click here or call 503-725-3738.
New construction and renovation projects give the university the opportunity to bring facilities and spaces up to current codes. In some cases, projects go beyond required codes and create living and learning environments that are not only accessible to all campus constituents, but also provide an equitable experience for everyone navigating to, from and within campus buildings.
