Custodial Operations

Custodial Services provides housekeeping for all University buildings except the University Student Union, Student Housing, Bookstore, Cafeteria, Outpost (49er Shops) and Foundation facilities. Services are currently provided on evenings and weekends by order of the President.

Currently, the university building rooms, restrooms, and areas are utilized at full capacity during the fall and spring terms. Since there is a reduction in building use during the fall/spring breaks and summer classes, staffing assignments are adjusted to concentrate on specialized project work and heavy cleaning that cannot be completed during periods of high volume building use. 

Our custodians are responsible for routine cleaning throughout the buildings that we service on campus.   Routine cleaning frequency, by space type is as follows:

Campus Cleaning Schedule
Area Frequency
Classrooms, Corridors, Restrooms, Gyms, Locker Rooms Daily
Indoor Eating Areas, Seating and Lounging Areas Daily
Laboratories Twice a week
Offices Weekly

Non-Routine services may be requested through Service Response and include:

  • Trash removal
  • Furniture moves
  • Emergency clean-ups
  • Floor restoration
  • Carpet cleaning and spot removal
  • Event set-ups 
Special projects involving cleaning, floor refinishing and carpet care are scheduled annually but can also be performed as needed.
