The Physical Plant Boiler Shop was designed by Howard Spencer Hazen and constructed in 1930 on the northeast ridge overlooking Alvarado Canyon.

The plant contained oil-fired boilers that provided heat to the campus during the winter. Maintenance and repair shops were located in a wing adjoining the boiler room.

The plant underwent repairs between 1935 and World War II, and the western wing of the building was extended in the 1940s as part of a Works Progress Administration project.

The Physical Plant Boiler Shop still contains boilers for heating the campus in addition to housing the Lock Shop. It now is part of a larger physical plant and maintenance complex on the northeastern edge of the campus.
