New Service Changes for FY14

Due to a budget reduction of 1/2 million in FY14, the Custodial Services Department must reduce service levels.  As in the past, our goal is to maintain a service model that puts our students first.  This ensures that primary student areas such as classrooms, library spaces, and food service areas are affected as little as possible.

Contact Paul Campo at with any questions.

With this as a goal, beginning June 24th, 2013 we are making the following changes: 

Building Service Hours

Academic & Administrative buildings that have been serviced on evenings will now be serviced on days (Mon – Fri 5am until 1:30pm). 

Here are all of the Academic & Administrative building hours FY14 Academic Building Cleaning Schedule.pdf

Research Labs

In the fall of 2011 the Custodial Services Department surveyed the UVM lab community to determine the safety and customer service needs.  With this information, in March 2013 Custodial Services began working with the Deans offices to establish a methodology to modify the service levels in research labs in a way which will maintain both safety and cleanliness. 

With the new fiscal year, research labs will move from daily service to a weekly rotational service.  Additionally, Custodial Services will no longer empty uncontaminated waste and recycle from the labs.  The research community will be responsible for bringing this waste to central locations in public areas (as office occupants currently do today).

Here is the preliminary research lab cleaning schedule FY14 Lab Cleaning Schedule.pdf  A final schedule will be posted shortly based on actual cleaning times.

Custodial Services will still provide; paper towels, soap, hand sanitizer, and waste can liner to the research lab community.

Campus Wide Changes:


Heavy floor cleaning will be reduced to 4 times per year from 12 times per year.


Auto scrubbing of hallway floors will be reduced to 4 times per week from 5 times per week.

Offices (Please Note):

While our office service levels are not changing, the other changes may necessitate a change to the timing of office cleaning.  Custodial Services will notify all office occupant of their office cleaning schedule moving forward by placing a table tent on their desk the week of June 24th.
