Welcome to Evergreen's Facilities Services.

Facilities Services helps keep Evergreen running

We need the services we provide to be easily accessible and understandable so that anyone can quickly communicate any questions and needs to us, and we hope this site will be a valuable resource.

We know that the buildings and grounds of The Evergreen State College are vital components of the Evergreen experience, and we want them to be as functional, beautiful, safe, secure, and contribute to a healthier environment. Your assistance and input are greatly appreciated.

If you don't find the answer you're looking for on this site, please call our front desk at (360) 867-5135 and we will be happy to assist you. If you need to see one of us in person we are located in Lab II, 1254.

Our team in the facilities department consider it our pleasure and privilege to assist you as you teach, study, work, play and serve at Evergreen.

Who are we?

Indigenous Arts Campus – Master Plan

Evergreen hosts thousands of visitors every year, and the Longhouse is a primary campus attraction as the college’s premiere gathering space. The creation of the Longhouse’s Indigenous Arts Campus will provide intriguing new indoor and outdoor spaces for people to gather, interact, and learn more about Indigenous Arts and Cultures from around the Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest.
