Custodial

In compliance with the Facilities Services Mission Statement:

The Custodial Services unit is responsible for all cleaning and janitorial maintenance in all academic and residential zones across the campus. They receive both direct budget allocations and recharges for their service area of responsibility. This unit of Facilities Services also provides set-ups for conference rooms, meeting and events. As part of the I3 initiative, set-up services are billed out and recharged to Custodial Services.
