Building Services

Building Services provides and maintains a comfortable, attractive and secure environment inside academic buildings on campus. We manage routine, emergency and special cleaning requests. We handle unlocking and locking of academic buildings and classrooms, minor maintenance requests, replacements of light bulbs/tubes, weekend custodial work and facilitate the removal of snow and ice in front of building entrances. Building Services has undergone major transformations with the budget and personnel cutbacks experienced in the past few years. As a result, we have become more focused on core duties relating to life safety and hazard mitigation; compliance with current policies and regulations; and primary maintenance duties. Nevertheless, we strive to use our limited resources to the fullest advantage, and are committed to implementing practices that are environmentally friendly and promote sustainability (see our Green Cleaning policy).

Services

  • Cleaning Frequencies — clean daily restrooms, classrooms and laboratories along with all common areas. Reception office areas are done twice a week and individual offices once a week.
