Custodial cleaning changes

Beginning Sept. 2, there will be some changes to how often some spaces on campus are cleaned by custodial staff. While most areas, including classrooms, washrooms, laboratories, libraries and cafeterias, won’t see any changes, there will be reductions in secondary public spaces and offices.

The university remains committed to maintaining a clean and safe environment for everyone on campus, and these changes will not compromise health and safety. PPS will closely monitor buildings and make adjustments if required.
