The office of Facility Services includes the following departments: Custodial, Grounds, Maintenance and Mail Room. These departments are responsible for all facilities and the environment including new construction and renovation on campus, maintenance and repair of facilities, daily cleaning of all campus buildings, maintenance of the College’s landscaped areas and athletic fields, care and allocation of the school’s vehicles and daily distribution of the student and campus mail.
Our mission is to serve the college community through excellence in facilities management, service advancement and environmental stewardship. We will accomplish this by aligning our goals with those of the College at-large and by implementing “best practices” to provide a healthy, safe and engaging atmosphere that supports the diverse needs of the college community while ensuring fiscal feasibility.
NEW STUDENT MAIL PROCEDURE
Only students who live ON CAMPUS are eligible to have their mail and packages sent to the mailroom, located in the Facility Services office. All other students must have their items sent to their residence or to their Post Office box. The Peru Post Office is located downtown, and boxes are available for rent.
All student mail and packages are delivered to the Facility Services mailroom daily, Monday through Friday. No mail or packages are delivered over the weekend or on holidays, and students have from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, to pick up their items. No staff is available to hand out packages/mail on weekends, after hours or holidays. When student mail/packages arrive, the items are entered into a tracking system, which then notifies the recipient via school email that their items are ready for pickup. Photo ID is required for package pick-up; you may not pick up other student’s packages.
Please use the following formats for mail/packages delivery:

Welcome to a New Year at Peru State College!
We have had so many changes around the campus this summer it is hard to list everything. One of the most notable changes is the completion of the new Performing Arts Center (PAC).
The project, which began summer, 2017, included adding on to the original building and creating a new Sesquicentennial Plaza. Please see the original Theatre Renovation article for full details.
Pictured below are some photos of the new PAC. Please enjoy them, and the new Performing Arts Center!
Oak Hill Apartments Rejuvenated
Welcome back Bobcats! This year the Oak Hill apartments are receiving some attention. The apartments, located east of the Oak Bowl, are home to several Juniors and Seniors during the school year.
Some of the apartments are receiving more work than others (Q Unit was completely remodeled a few years ago and will not be addressed at this time), however, all of the apartments have had new wood laminate flooring and toilets installed. Some of the other touchups include paint, some new showers/tub surrounds, outdoor concrete work, landscape mulch, interior doors and storm doors. Future plans consist of replacing storm damaged roofs and fixing building exteriors.
Please take a look at the before and after pictures below.
Dining Area Receives Face-Lift by New Provider
In preparation for the new dining service, Fresh Ideas, the kitchen, dining area and Library coffee shop are undergoing a few changes.
Gone are the large grey tables and brown cobblestone-esque carpet. New seating includes a combination of 2-seat and 4-seat squares, 6-seat and 8-seat rounds, booths and high top community tables. The chairs are aluminum ladder-backed with wood seats, while the booth seats are blue and charcoal fabric. The new layout will maximize the space, and add 18 more seats to the dining room.
A mixture of charcoal gray, blue and black carpet in the dining area will provide the perfect backdrop to the new seating. The existing tile walkway will remain; however, LVT will be added to parts of the servery area.
The servery is undergoing a complete change, starting with the removal of a couple of walls. The entire food area is now an open space, which will house several different food stations. Students and staff will have the opportunity to visit each station without leaving the servery area.
Along with the new seating and servery, Fresh Ideas will be installing Fresh on Demand kiosks in the entry area of the Student Center. These kiosks will be available 24/7, filled daily with fresh snacks and light meals, and will be located in the space that formerly housed the student mailboxes.
The coffee shop in the Library is also receiving some modification. The wall between the shop and Library was taken down, and tables and chairs placed in the Library for dining.
We look forward to the new areas and dining service. Welcome to campus Fresh Ideas!
