A functional building. An attractive campus. A clean environment.

Our mission is to create a safe, functional, clean, efficient, and attractive living and learning environment. We focus on providing routine cleaning of facilities and housing, cleaning and recycling for campus events, special delivery or services, and recycling services. Our staff will also inventory and stock supplies such as toilet paper in every building to maintain daily operations.

Our housekeeping services

At Facilities Operations, our housekeeping units are focused on servicing the academic buildings and auxiliary areas such as the Student Union, Towers, and the Arena. Our team services common spaces within the Housing areas and provides a deep clean during semester turns. Areas such as the Recreation and Wellness Center, UCF Foundation, and Athletics manage their own housekeeping units. We also offer our services for some other auxiliary buildings at a billable rate.

Office space and personal cubicle locations will receive service weekly for trash removal and vacuuming. Centralized receptacles are located conveniently for faculty and staff  in all buildings for any recycling needs. (note: due to the sensitive nature of some recycled items, Facilities Operations Housekeeping & Recycling staff will not empty recycling receptacles within personal office and/or cubicle space.)

Common area locations are serviced daily for removal of all refuse/recycling, sweeping/mopping of hard floors, vacuuming of all carpeted space,  and dusting or wiping of hard surfaces.

Preventive maintenance is also performed on flooring surfaces on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis according to required services.
