Custodial Services

The custodial services department cleans approximately one million square feet of building space five times a week. This includes over 800,000 square feet in the administrative buildings and 200,000 square feet in the hallways and bathrooms of the residential halls. Each summer the custodians thoroughly clean every classroom, room, auditorium, hallway, bathroom, office, and staircase on campus two separate times.
