Cleaning Services

Majority of custodial services are performed overnight by crews assigned to each building. A small daytime crew services restrooms and high-traffic areas. Please reach out to the custodial team if you have any questions regarding when your weekly services will take place.

Green Seal-approved chemicals and equipment are utilized to the greatest extent possible, and both are reviewed constantly for increased implementation across the campus.
