Facilities Services is the largest department within University Facilities. These employees are responsible for cleaning, waste removal, recycling, mail and shipping, room set-ups, residential, academic, and administrative relocations, pest management, field maintenance, snow removal, and outdoor maintenance.
COVID Supply Distribution Procedure
University Facilities is designated by the Presidential Advisory Committee on COVID-19 as the campus’ sole provider of hand sanitizer, cleaners, disinfectants, eye protection, and gloves for individual use in work spaces, residence buildings, learning areas, meeting rooms, and other public locations. We purchase and maintain sufficient amounts of each product for the entire campus and monitor inventory levels and supply distribution by department, school, or area.
Persons requesting supplies must be authorized in advance by a Division or Department Head. University Facilities maintains a list of authorized campus requesters. Supply requests from persons not included on this list are forwarded to the Division or Department Head for approval. The AVP for Facilities Services is responsible for managing all supply requests, and validating the appropriateness of each before fulfillment.
Requests for non-standard COVID supplies are evaluated by the AVP and the Assistant Director of Environmental Health and Safety on a case-by-case basis.

Passport & Notary Services
As a Passport Acceptance Facility, Montclair State University offers full U.S. Passport processing and Notary services to University employees, students, and the public. Passport processing services are scheduled by appointment only.
Moving & Event Support Services
Moving Services is divided into two work units: Campus Moving and Residential Moving. Please contact the Facilities Customer Service Center at 973-655-5444 or firstname.lastname@example.org to communicate your moving needs. Major moving and relocation activities associated with capital construction and renovation projects are coordinated through the Department of Capital Planning and Project Management.
The Campus Moving unit moves furniture, boxes, and equipment for Academic and Administrative customers. This group also performs room set-ups for on-and-off-campus University events.
University Facilities owns a limited number of non-permanent 10’ x 10’, 10′ x 15′, and 10’ x 20’ tents available for the convenience and use of campus customers. Tents are loaned to Academic and Administrative division programs at the request of University Deans and Vice Presidents to be used for special events or activities that benefit University faculty, staff, and students. Tent requests from unauthorized persons are forwarded to the Division VP or Dean for approval. Approval to use this equipment is granted on a first-come, first-served basis; however, approval will be assigned in the following priority order:
- Presidential Special Events
- Academic Program Use
- Administrative Program Use
Waste & Pest Management Services
Under the supervision of Grounds & Landscape Services, Waste Management staff are responsible for waste removal and recycling. Montclair State uses a single stream recycling system in all buildings. “Single stream recycling” is the process of collecting all recyclable materials (i.e. mixed paper, plastics, metals, glass, and cans) in the same recycling container to be sorted off-site, by the University’s recycling vendor.
A certified pest control company is on campus every Monday and Thursday to provide routine service and to complete relevant work orders for the extermination of insects, small animals, and rodents. The exterminator practices Integrated Pest Management, the practice of using the least toxic or harmful method of controlling pests. Residence Halls are treated three times during the academic year during student breaks.
