How will campus be cleaned? (Updated September 11)

  • Building Services will perform expanded disinfection operations, led by a new Expanded Disinfection Operations Team.
    • Touch point disinfection of campus 5x/week
    • Wide area disinfection of classrooms 5x/week
    • A day-time disinfection of high traffic restrooms in addition to the evening/night shift disinfecting to total 10x/week.
  • To facilitate increased focus on common area disinfection operations, Building Services personnel will curtail routine service frequencies for cleaning services in offices and personal workspaces.
    • Building Services will develop a process for service-upon-request (e.g. vacuum carpet) tasks within offices.
    • Academic, administrative, and research departments will retain existing responsibilities for disinfecting areas within their operating environment.
  • Priorities for Building Services staff will be as follows:
  1. Public safety/infrastructure protection (e.g. response to leaks and floods, snow removal at building entrances, etc.)
  2. Disinfecting critical areas
    1. Restrooms
    2. Common area high touch points (e.g. door handles)
