Custodial Services

Facilities and Property Management provides custodial and janitorial services to the University through contracts with specialized custodial and janitorial service providers.

The PSU custodial contractors do not service individual, desk-side trash cans. Building occupants are responsible for emptying their own trash and recycling containers into centralized collection containers.

Effective September 1st, 2017, personal offices will be cleaned over the first 5 working days of each month. Custodians work Sunday through Thursday nights. Service is not provided on Friday or Saturday. Depending on the number of offices on each floor, it may take multiple days to complete a given floor.  Desk side trash service is not  provided. The schedule linked below is our best estimate of when you can expect cleaning to occur in your building. Occasionally unforeseen events may alter this schedule.
