Baseline Services:

Housekeeping Staff will adjust their baseline services to focus on cleaning and maintaining common areas. Active classrooms will also be cleaned on regular intervals and will be furnished with sanitizing supplies by Housekeeping. In the event classroom cleaning supplies are low, UC Faculty and Staff may call Work Control at 558-2500 for classroom supply replenishment.

Effective immediately, Housekeeping staff will not be cleaning or performing trash removal for individual and Department Offices. Employees should empty individual office trash cans into larger hallway receptacles.

Follow these guidelines if you need some guidance on how to properly clean your area.


  • Operate the All Recycling program.
  • Scrub, wax, burnish and refinish floors during academic term breaks, where feasible, and as break time permits. 
  • Shampoo carpets/carpet cleaning during academic term breaks, where feasible, and as break time permits.
  • Window cleaning is contracted out, as the availability of funding permits.
  • Expenses related to requests for variations in service schedules (i.e., lock outs) are passed on to the requesting department.
  • Above-baseline custodial/cleaning services may be requested on a fee-for-service basis, by dialing 513-558-2500.


  • All custodial staffing is based on availability. When a shortage of staff exists, areas will be policed.
  • The priority standard for cleaning is as follows: restrooms; classrooms; public spaces; and labs.  In areas designated as office space, trash will be emptied three (3) times a week, provided staffing is available. This policy has been affected by the recent COVID-19 outbreak (see here).
  • Custodial staff may only perform duties that are specifically listed in their job classification.
  • Due to the sensitivity of equipment, at no time will custodial staff clean televisions, computers, monitors, and their related work station equipment, tables and desks.
  • Room and building access requests should be made to UC Police at 513-556-1111.  Housekeeping does not perform this function.
