University Real Estate Operations
On January 4, 2016, the offices of Centennial Campus Development and University Real Estate (formerly under the Treasurer’s Office) joined to form University Real Estate Operations. This restructuring will unify the real estate operations of the University into one office with three functional areas of responsibility: Centennial Campus, University and Associated Entities Real Estate, and Property Management of facilities on Centennial Campus. Our goal is to improve customer service, response time, and operating efficiency for the combined functions while providing one place for campus users to interface with the university’s real estate experts.
