Cleaning Procedures


Suite Cleaning

Suite cleaning is up to each resident. The Department of Residence Life has cleaning supplies available to residents that may be checked out at the Horizon Village Front Desk. These will include

  • Toilet bowl cleaner
  • Glass Cleaner
  • Disinfectant

Bathroom Cleaning

The custodial staff will come into each suite during Winter Break to sanitize the bathroom & shower facilities. Residents are expected to clean their bathrooms during the semester. In order to have the custodial staff sanitize the bathrooms during winter break the following must happen:

  • All personal items must be removed from the bathroom (with the exception of items stored in the bathroom drawers).
  • The hallway leading to each bathroom must be completely clear to allow for unobstructed access for cleaning carts, etc.
  • This includes the sink area, the shower area or shower room, towel hooks / bars, soaps shampoos, shower caddies and any other personal items brought in i.e. plastic storage drawers, bins, etc.
  • This must be completed prior to custodial staff entering the suite to sanitize the bathrooms

The custodians will not move any person items. If these things are not done the custodian will not clean the bathroom. In the event the bathrooms are not properly prepared, the residents of the suite will be assessed a $100 administrative fee to cover the costs of delayed and/or additional cleaning. Residents will notified of specific dates and time ranges during Winter Break that Custodial staff will be entering suites. Information will be shared via email, hall posters, and in building meetings.

Toilet Paper

Toilet paper will be provided to all residents. They may receive additional toilet paper when needed, from the front desk during desk hours, up to two rolls of toilet paper, per suite, per week.
