Building Services Department plays an important part in the University image and mission. We provide a healthy place for students to learn, employees to work, and for visitors to feel welcome. Our individual and collective goal is to go from providing good services to great services. The journey to great services involves continuous improvement, because there is always a better way, and our quest is to keep looking for it.
Our workforce consists of approximately 400 dedicated and talented professionals, deployed over multiple shifts to provide daily cleaning and service of over 900 buildings which equates to approximately 12.5 million square feet of facilities. Custodial Workers and Supervisors provide service for classrooms, offices, patient clinics, laboratories, research facilities, recreational facilities, and much more. Our team is the first line of defense against the spread of illnesses and germs, and we take great pride in helping to ensure that the University of Florida is a safe and hygienic working and learning environment for the entire Gator Nation.
