The Downtown Facilities Management staff strives to maintain the academic buildings, as well as all residence halls on the downtown campus, in a safe, aesthetically pleasing, clean and comfortable environment conducive to living, learning, and working. Areas of the buildings included in this responsibility are: classrooms, offices, laboratories, sports facilities, residence hall rooms, libraries and other areas in the buildings.
The Mountainlair cleaning staff work a 24-hour, 7-day work week schedule for the convenience of the students, faculty, and staff in order to maximize their effectiveness.
During the past two years, we have made a concerted effort to streamline our cleaning processes and initiate a “Green” cleaning program. While initiating this “Green” program, we have started a product review committee and spent countless hours testing and using new products in an effort to utilize the most environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and equipment possible. In our efforts to reach these goals, we have eliminated many of the cleaning products we used in the past and replaced them with cleaning supplies that are user friendly and protect the health and well-being of the workers, building occupants, and users. Additionally, we have made a large investment in new equipment that not only cleans more efficiently but optimizes the efforts of the staff. The Kaivac bathroom cleaner, Chariot vacuum and many other new forms of technology have been purchased in order to make our cleaning supplies state of the art and efficient.
The cleaning staff working in the academic buildings primarily work 10:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m., whereas the staff working in the residence halls primarily work 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. with 24/7 emergency staff that are on call during weekends, holidays and afternoon and midnight hours. These times are for the convenience of the students, faculty, and staff in order to maximize their effectiveness.
We are responsible for approximately 2,800 students who live in the downtown residence halls during the school year. Additionally, some of these residence halls are utilized for conference events and lodging during the summer months for sports camps, corporate meetings, etc.
