Housekeeping Services

Submitted by evicente on Thu, 02/02/2017 - 3:16pm
All common areas in Residence buildings on campus are cleaned by Residence Services housekeeping. The areas include, community bathrooms on every floor three times per week and community lounges on every floor two times per week. Students can check out vacuum cleaners at the Residence Services office to vacuum their personal apartments/rooms. These services are included in the fees.

Students are responsible to keep their own rooms and personal space clean and tidy. Residence Services is now offering housekeeping and laundry services for residents who may not have the time, or need help keeping up with weekly chores.
