A custodial staff regularly cleans the public areas in and around all residential buildings.

The Property Management staff conducts safety inspections, performs general maintenance functions (i.e., painting, plumbing, electrical). Residents may submit requests for maintenance 24-hours a day by completing a work order form. Technicians are on-call after business hours and on weekends to respond to maintenance requests.

Trash Disposal and Recycling

Residents are responsible for removing their trash to receptacles outside, but in close proximity to, their residence halls. Residents are strongly encouraged to recycle and housing provides convenient means to facilitate that effort. Learn what you can recycle through our residential recycling program.

Residents are notified when to pick up packages. Resident mailing addresses and mailroom locations are available on the mail services website.
