Facilities Department Mission Statement

Welcome to the home page of the Palomar College Facilities Department.  Our mission is to provide a safe, clean, healthy, comfortable environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors to our campuses.  In fact, our mission is stated in three simple words — “Service, Pride, Quality.”

The Facilities Office is staffed from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday to serve the needs of the College faculty, staff, students and visitors.  After these hours and on weekends as well as holidays, please contact Campus Police at extension 2289 or (760) 891-7273.

The Facilities Office’s primary mission is to act as the liaison between the College community and the Facilities Department.  The Facilities Office staff is responsible for receiving all requests for emergency, normal or special services.  It also establishes priorities and assigns responsibility to the appropriate department and/or trade for execution.  You can contact us via Facilities Remedy or by phone at (760) 744-1150 extension 2629 to provide services that are tailored to your needs and requirements.
