The mission of the property department is to identify opportunities available in managing the university’s facilities efficiently as well as minimising threats that the university will face when it comes to real estate management.

The vision of the department is to offer excellent management of buildings, provision of infrastructural facilities for the university, contributing towards optimal working environment. It is also our vision that all assets are put their highest and best use, protected from all encumbrances

Core Values
The Property Department’s core values are clarity to work, commitment to work and developing a sense of responsibility at work. In order to fulfil our mission there is the need to motivate, counsel and coach staff to improve their sense of responsibility and commitment.

  • Clarity of work
    Helping our staff majority of who are not literate understand what they need to know and to do it well is of priority to the unit. Clarity builds consent and regularity, providing direction for individual to understand how they can work smarter to improve GTUC
  • Commitment to work
    The department recognizes that staff of the unit needs to be happy and fulfilled in their job. Appreciating staff effort in person or by email goes along way to affect their work in GTUC
  • Sense of responsibility at work
    Each project plan that the department decides to do have to be accomplished successfully, therefore as much as possible artisans, cleaners making excuses should be discouraged. Negativity should be wiped out from their minds as much as possible, while helping staff think positively and assume the role of successful adults
