Custodial Services is responsible for cleaning more than 10,000,000 square feet in 148 buildings on campus daily. Custodians work on all three shifts, but the overwhelming majority operates on second shift (5:00pm-1:30am) and third shift (10:30pm-7:00am). The normal day shift is comprised of less than 7 percent of our workforce and is usually limited to policing spills, stocking restrooms, and responding to emergency situations campus wide.
Our current workforce includes about 400 custodians, about one-third of which do not have English as their native language. In an effort to enhance our service to all our customers we are teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) on campus to these employees.
