Housekeeping – Common Areas and Individual Offices

Facilities Management will continue to clean public areas, including floors, restrooms, stairwells, hallways, lobbies, waiting areas, and conference rooms. Individuals will take ownership of cleaning personal spaces. Cleaning and disinfecting common and shared areas will be the responsibility of departments and units. Supervisors should develop and communicate a clear plan and assignment of responsibilities for this using your existing office staff.

Units should stock critical housekeeping supplies (e.g., hand sanitizer dispensers located in multiple areas, cleaning supplies, paper towels, gloves, etc. in stock). They should also stock some disposable masks for vendors, guests, and employees who may not have them. The University will ensure all necessary supplies or appropriate substitutes are available to purchase through LoboMart.
