Kean began as a small school in Newark more than 150 years ago and now has a 150-acre campus. Today, Kean ranks as the third largest public university in the state. In recent years, Kean has transformed its buildings and services and prides itself on being in great condition. The Office of Facilities uses a cloud based software application called School Dude - Maintenance Direct. Anyone on campus can access and fill out a work request from any web capable device, from any location. Once the form is completed, the Head of Maintenance will assign the work request to one of the maintenance workers.
