Welcome! Facilities Services is one of the largest departments at UC Riverside, employing nearly 400 career employees.

Bourns Hall Lab Renewal

Tyrone Holland, Senior Custodian of Facilities Services, worked diligently with Maggie Souder, Safety and Facilities Coordinator at UCR Bourns College of Engineering, to restore the over 22-year-old Bourns Hall lab floors to new again. This required a high level of communication and coordination with the construction crews as well as faculty and staff to assure timely, high quality delivery of lab spaces. We thank Tyrone for his hard work and dedication on the project.
