Custodial Services

Providing custodial services for UCLA's over 12 million combined state supported and client requested square footage is an enormous task. We cater to all areas of our University, including specialized areas such as vivaria, recreational facilities, wet and dry laboratories and patient care areas. We provide support to special events and emergency response.

To make this all run smoothly, it takes dedicated and trained custodians to provide our customers with the highest level of service while meeting their needs, 7 days a week. Our crews are divided into three shifts to make it all happen. The majority of cleaning is performed by custodians after most business operations are winding down. Special services during the day and weekends are also provided.
