Custodial Notification re: Cleaning of Laboratories

Recent shifts in the Custodial department’s responsibilities, in response to Covid19 and an abnormally high vacancy rate, has resulted in the Facilities Services Custodial group experiencing heavier workloads than normal. Due to these circumstances, Custodial Services will not be entering research lab spaces to sweep floors and empty trash.  Until this situation improves and future custodial service levels across campus are defined, please place your garbage receptacles and floor sweepings outside of your lab(s), preferably in the hallway, for our staff to attend to as part of our normal routes.

Facilities’ Custodial Services will continue to clean offices on a monthly basis and common spaces each day (restrooms, hallways, lobbies, stairways, scheduled teaching spaces, high-touch surfaces, etc.).

If you have an urgent issue, please contact the Work Control Center.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, and please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.
