Energy and utility services

Instrumentation, Controls, and Metering employees working on computers

Facilities Management operates and maintains all University utility plants and distribution systems with the exception of telephone and data communication services, which in most cases, are provided by UVA Information Technology and Communication (ITC).

The Energy & Utilities department of Facilities Management maintains and operates high voltage electric systems, central heating and chilled water plants, water storage and pumping facilities, and the associated distribution systems required to transport these services to most University buildings. Remaining buildings receive service directly from local utility companies or from stand-alone heating and cooling systems. Energy & Utilities is also responsible for storm water and sanitary sewer systems.

Malfunctions, outages and other utility issues should be reported to the Facilities Management Service Desk at (434) 924-1777.
