AUD provides a cleaning service in order to maintain a clean, safe, hygienic, and attractive environment in the residence halls. This practice is mandatory and free-of-charge. Cleaning is done on a weekly basis according to the floor schedule. Cleaners take 15 minutes to ventilate the rooms, clean the toilets, and wipe the floor of each room. The cleaning schedule is from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Saturday through Thursday.
Students’ presence is preferred, but if they are not in the room or do not respond, the Housing Controller will open the room and will supervise the cleaning to ensure full security. Weekly cleaning of rooms is mandatory.
Please note that cleaners do not pick up clothing or other items, hence students are advised to prepare their rooms appropriately for cleaning. Students who wish to have their rooms cleaned more than once per week should request this service by signing in the Cleaners Log Book at the Housing Security Office. Cleaning requests will be handled on a “schedule-permitting” basis and should not be expected immediately.
Students who are reported having messy/dirty rooms will be assigned violation points and might be required to attend information sessions with the Health Director and the Personal Counselor.
Students are responsible for cleaning and picking up after themselves in the kitchen on a daily basis. This includes washing the dishes, pots, pans, and glassware they have used; putting away food; throwing away garbage; and wiping down work surfaces.
