Outside Window Cleaning

Due to many factors, (special equipment needed, high risk to employees in some areas, weather limitations forcing the work to be performed in a short time) we provide window cleaning services only for the outside lower levels of selected buildings. We can, however, provide these services through a contractor at your department’s expense. If you would like to have the outside of your windows cleaned, please contact us at 970-491-0077 and we will arrange for a window cleaning contractor who has been approved by our Purchasing Department to contact you, provide an estimate, and schedule the work to be performed. If you are not satisfied with the work of the contractor, please contact us immediately.

Locking and Unlocking Doors

Building custodians are responsible for unlocking and locking all building entries on the main campus, as well as select classrooms within the building. Buildings are unlocked by 7:00 AM and locked by 10:00 PM Monday-Friday. Actual building lock-up time may vary depending on occupant needs and class scheduling.  On weekends and holidays, only those buildings scheduled through the campus scheduling office will be unlocked. As a matter of university policy, custodial staff will not unlock and provide access to buildings or offices after hours including weekends and holidays.  Individuals requiring access to buildings after hours, on weekends or holidays shall have pre-approved keys or card access as required or must contact the building proctor or department head to gain access.

Any special pest control services in labs or other critical locations will be provided on a fee-for-service basis.
