Housing & Dining Facilities has boosted both the frequency and the level of cleaning in all of our buildings. We are using a bleach solution on high-touch areas (elevator buttons, door knobs, front desks, etc.). Disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer are available at all front desks and in all dining centers. Our Environmental Services crews are also ensuring that all soap dispensers are regularly filled.
Is hand sanitizer available at the residence halls?
Yes, in addition to the front desk areas, hand sanitizer stations are being added to the resident floors. Handwashing is best and we encourage all students to regularly wash hands (i.e. after passing through public spaces, before and after eating, after using the restroom, etc.).
How often will community bathrooms be cleaned?
Community bathrooms will be cleaned twice per day and Housing & Dining Facilities will also provide cleaning supplies if students would like to additionally clean surfaces before and after use.
How often will suite bathrooms be cleaned?
Suite bathrooms will be cleaned once per month to reduce staff entry into student rooms. Cleaning kits will be provided for each suite room for self-cleaning of sinks/vanities and bathrooms between staff cleanings.
What additional measures are being taken to sanitize the surfaces in common areas like lobbies?
In addition to frequent cleaning, we are purchasing electrostatic disinfectant sprayers for staff use, which contain positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects.
