Cleaning and Maintenance Policy

Cleaning of the public areas in the academic and administrative buildings on campus is performed Sunday through Thursday nights on 3rd shift. The public spaces in the Student Center and Recreation Complex are primarily cleaned between 2nd and 3rd shift while the private areas (offices, classrooms, private meeting spaces, etc.) are cleaned Sunday thru Thursday nights on 3rd shift.  Cleaning in the public areas in each of the residence halls is done on a daily basis, including weekends.  A schedule for daily trash removal and cleaning of the restrooms will be posted on each restroom door. Students with a concern about cleanliness or maintenance of any area are asked to submit a work request with specific details so the issue can be resolved in a timely manner.

When the housekeeping or the maintenance staff are in a restroom to clean or make repairs, the entrance(s) will be closed and blocked or roped off. It is mandatory that students use another restroom during that time.  The university reserves the right to take disciplinary action against any student that violates this policy.
