The mission of the Real Estate and Facilities Service is to offer to the community of users and to all visitors the optimal work and life environment for the scope of their stay. 

The REFS manages the overall infrastructure of the EUI Campus. It operates and maintains all of the Institute's buildings and their services, developing them and implementing plans for sustainable growth.

The service takes care of the day-to-day running of the EUI, managing canteens, the crèche, housing service, postal service, welcome service, ordinary maintenance and site security. Other areas which come under the remit of the Real Estate and Facilities Service are the central filing and protocol office, the organisation of conference and seminar rooms, the management of audiovisual equipment, document reproduction and printing, environmental services, the purchase office and translation work.

The REFS has regular meetings with the EUI Community Representatives (Researchers, Heads of Department, Departmental and Administrative Coordinators) to analyse their needs and take action on the implementation of effective measures.
