Facilities Housekeeping Services Transferred to Nights Effective June 10, 2013

Effective Monday, June 10, 2013, Facilities Main Campus housekeeping staff and services will be transferred to nights. Ten day-porters and one day-porter leader will be assigned to the Main Campus to supplement night housekeeping services. The transfer is part of Business Affairs' initiative to transition all Facilities grounds and housekeeping services to a contractor. .

The day-porters will be responsible for making housekeeping rounds during the day between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (Monday – Friday); provide housekeeping services in high traffic areas; respond to emergencies; and support Facilities Event Services as needed. Night housekeeping services will continue to be performed each night between 5:00 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. (Monday – Friday).

The transition to night operations only affects Facilities Main Campus Housekeeping. It does not include housekeeping staff managed by Student Affairs auxiliaries such as student housing, recreation and the UC. Facilities is currently engaged in a competitive selection process to establish contracted housekeeping and grounds services at the DTC and ITC, and potentially some of the "West Campus" at the Main Campus, which is expected to begin around September 1, 2013. Individuals or offices needing housekeeping assistance or wanting to report housekeeping issues or concerns during the day time, can call Facilities Work Control at 458-4262.

Please join Facilities in welcoming the new day-porters (pictured below).
