Maintenance & Operations
The custodians on the day shift clean floors when an emergency arises, check restrooms for paper and required supplies, assist Security unlocking classroom doors, and perform routine housekeeping as time permits. Each campus normally has coverage of two (2) custodians during the day.
Day custodians also take requests for setups for special events. These typically include requests for tables, chairs, and lecturns for departmental events, student union activities, speakers, etc.
The custodial staff provides general housekeeping/custodial service, such as restroom cleaning, restroom sanitizing, and all other forms of cleaning including walls, floors, wastebaskets, classrooms, halls, and trash disposal.
The custodial staff turns off lights in the evening in unoccupied classrooms and offices. The campus buildings are typically locked at varying times dependent upon the building function and opened again at 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. To have a building opened at other hours or weekends, please contact Campus Safety.
The custodial department typically provides annual cleaning of carpets in all buildings on campus. However, we understand that there are times where additional cleaning in between may be required due to heavy traffic, events, or other activities. To request carpet cleaning, please submit a work order request.
While staff regularly checks and fills all paper towel, soap, and toilet paper dispensers, sometimes additional service is required. If you see a unit that is empty, please call the M&O office for assistance.
