Building Services provides basic cleaning and minor maintenance services to classroom and administrative buildings.
Entrance areas, common areas (hallways, stairwells, student lounges, lobbies), rest rooms, Child Development Center, and similar areas are cleaned daily (Mon-Thurs).
As a general rule of thumb, the most frequent attention is paid the areas closest to the front door(s) and less frequent service is given to areas furthest inside the building.
Classrooms and departmental offices are cleaned thoroughly twice weekly and policed on alternate days. The difference in care is generally the level of attention given the floors.
Individual faculty and staff offices are cleaned once every two weeks throughout the year and more often as seasonal work activities, staff availability and inclement weather permit.
High traffic common areas are addressed on a quarterly basis as breaks in the academic calendar permit.
Intense floor care work, shampooing for carpeted areas and stripping/refinishing for hard surfaces, is generally performed annually between May and August.
As noted, regular custodial service is provided Monday through Thursday. Departments or individuals scheduling programs or functions, other than normal scheduled classes, Friday afternoon through Sunday evening, need to make special arrangements for custodial service. These events will be scheduled on an overtime basis and departments or individuals will need to provide a valid University account number for the charges. Please submit a service request on FAMIS.
