Custodial Services Provided: 

  • Restrooms
  • Classrooms
  • Laboratories
  • Walkways
  • Snow/Ice mitigation etc...

Note: Custodians are responsible for hand snow shoveling walkways around their assigned buildings. This additional duty takes them away from their interior duties. During inclement weather our staff performs the following duties in the following order: Snow shoveling, restroom cleaning, classroom cleaning, public area cleaning, and if time allows then they start on laboratories and finally offices. This may mean that these latter space types are skipped for the week.

Cleaning Services Details:

***Due to a reduction in labor the Custodial Department has transitioned from Zone Cleaning to Team Cleaning. A custodian is no longer assigned to a single floor within a building. They are now working in teams of f our and are assigned several buildings to clean. Changes in cleaning frequencies have also occurred.***


UCCS OFFICES: Will be cleaned One Time Per Month. If individuals need desk side trash/recycling containers emptied more than one time per month, we ask that office personnel (faculty and staff) empty desk side trash/recycling containers into a larger common area container. Common areas where office trash/recycling can be emptied include kitchens, breakrooms, copy rooms, hallway, restrooms. 

COMMON AREAS & RESTROOMS: (Kitchens, Breakrooms, Copy Rooms, Hallways, Restrooms, etc.) Will be cleaned and trash/recycling removed daily (M-F). 

CLASSROOMS: Will be cleaned daily (M-F). All trash and recycling containers (except for "Wipes Only" containers) have been removed from the classrooms and relocated to hallway areas. We ask that faculty and/or staff instruct students to dispose of their personal trash/recycling in the hallway containers. Trash/recycling containers have been moved to hallways so custodial staff can empty containers at any time during their shift. Also, this should alleviate food odor issues in the classrooms we have encountered in the past. 

WHITEBOARDS: Custodians will no longer erase whiteboards located in classrooms and conferences rooms. Trays will be cleaned as needed, erasers and markers will be supplied as usual. We ask that faculty and staff erase whiteboards after they are done using them, so the boards are ready for the next faculty or staff member. White boards will be cleaned during the break periods, to address any "shadowing" that might occur. 


ADDITIONAL COMMON AREA CONTAINERS: Additional common area trash and recycling containers have been placed in all buildings. If we missed an area that needs additional containers, please let us know by submitting a work order with details of the location. 

WORK ORDERS: If cleaning or assistance is needed, please submit your work order at If working remotely, you MUST be logged in to the campus VPN to submit a work order.
