Campus Operations provides ongoing support for buildings and facilities throughout UC Berkeley including the Central Campus, and other University satellite facilities. We operate round the clock to maintain over 11 million square feet of building space, 1,085 acres of land to include the Hill campus, and manage over 35 tons of solid waste that move through the campus daily. The Zero Waste outreach team also provides assistance and resources to departments and groups to educate on how to reduce the amount of waste is sent to the landfill.
Cal Zero Waste manages over 25 tons of solid waste that move through the campus daily and is committed to expanding recycling programs while providing effective refuse collection services.
The Landscape Services group provides grounds maintenance services including irrigation, hillside fire mitigation, landscape maintenance, street sweeping, contract management and consultation.
Environmental Services (Pest Management) provides consultation on pest prevention techniques for both indoor and outdoor areas including campus labs, offices, food areas, and housing units for all types of pests.
UC Berkeley has closed People's Park and begun construction of urgently needed student housing and permanent supportive housing for formerly unhoused people. People's Park is not presently available for any use by the general public.
The Hill Campus Fire Risk Reduction work has been extensively described and analyzed both in the UC Berkeley 2020 Long Range Development Plan and in an environmental impact statement prepared on behalf of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and approved in 2015.
