The purpose of this paper is to reports part of on ongoing research. Studies have investigated the maintenance management of university buildings in Malaysia; however, the studies have observed maintenance management procedures that are corrective and cost-driven. These are contributing to the spate of maintenance backlogs, unnecessary increase in maintenance costs and poor users’ satisfactions. The outcome of this research is to devise a prototype maintenance management model that can facilitate university institutions to carry out buildings maintenance management services that meet the expectations, needs and perceptions of the stakeholders with optimum use of resources. Although the research specifically focused on university buildings, many public and private sector organizations face similar maintenance management problems. Therefore, this research has broader applications.
