Custodial services are provided on a daily basis, Monday through Friday, in every facility. Students are responsible for picking up after themselves. Our Custodial staff are responsible for cleaning the picked up common spaces, providing minor, routine maintenance (replacing light bulbs, toilet paper, etc.), emptying trash, and inspecting and maintaining each building.
Custodians do not clean individual student rooms and students are responsible for placing their trash and recyclables in the appropriate receptacles. Your building custodians work hard for you and WPI. Please respect what they do and make the effort to get to know them.
Keys & Access Control
Exterior doors to all residence halls are locked 24 hours a day to keep unwanted individuals out of the residence halls. Room keys are issued by Residential Services at the beginning of every school year. All keys are the property of the university and may not be duplicated and/or transferred to other persons. Students are expected to keep their keys with them at all times. If the keys are lost, stolen, or not returned after termination of occupancy, the resident will be billed the cost of changing the locks. It is a violation of college policy to lend or make available for use, any key(s) to a room/apartment, to anyone other than the occupant of that room/apartment.
Residence hall doors must be kept locked at all times. Tampering with locks in the residence hall is prohibited. Disciplinary action including restitution may result from these actions.
