Pest Control

  • The Office of Building Services is responsible for the extermination or removal of insects and small animals/rodents. A yearly service inspection is conducted in all campus buildings as part of the Office’s planned maintenance program. In addition, basic pest control services are provided to the administrative and academic campus community on a per-request basis. The residence halls are serviced twice a week during the academic year, and on a per-request basis throughout the non-academic season. A State certified pest control company is responsible for the actual pest control. All pest complaints should be submitted as an on-line Work Order Request.

Snow & Ice Removal

  • During the winter months, the removal of snow and ice is the joint responsibility of both the Office of Building Services and the Office of Grounds and Landscape Maintenance Services. This service is accomplished according to pre-established schedules and plans which have been developed to accomplish three major goals:
    • Maximize the efficiency of the operations staff members and their designated equipment
    • Complete the removal operation in the shortest time possible
    • Ensure that the campus is safe to open
  • The Office of Building Services is specifically responsible for the removal of snow and ice from around all campus buildings, a minimum of ten feet out depending on the entranceway/walkway of a particular building. This generally occurs approximately one and one half hours after the Office of Grounds and Landscape Maintenance Services has commenced with the clearing of the roadways and major walkways. Once the main entrances are cleared to a safe condition, staff will continue to work on clearing secondary entrances, squaring off walkways, completing a total clearing of steps to prevent ice accumulation, and applying additional sand or ice melt in areas as required.
  • If you feel that an area remains particularly icy or may have been overlooked, please contact the Customer Support Center at 609-771-2353 and staff will be dispatched to the area.
