Real Estate Operations

Grand Rapids Research Center

Real Estate Operations manages university properties and facilities. MSU's landholdings total more than 26,000 acres across the state.

MSU operates on the philosophy that if non-campus land is not being used for research, teaching or outreach, it should be sold and put back on the tax rolls. The income from the sale of excess land goes into a land and improvement fund, which assists with purchasing additional land as needed.
