UNIVERSITY TOWERS - Stu-Reg Univ Towers Custodian

Job Classification


Position summary

Currently seeking workers to assist my team by filling in. Must be responsible to work independently, or in teams, to clean the University Towers building and vacant rooms, as trained and directed by supervisor or assistant.

This "essential" work is available all year long, Sundays-Fridays, during holidays, breaks, snow days, and all through the summer months. Schedules will be set by supervisor or assistant, and can be flexible, as coordinated with students' schedules, and advanced requests.

This person should be a trustworthy self-starter, who works quickly, diligently, and thoroughly, with a service-minded character of caring for others. 

Qualifications summary

Must be at least 18 years old, trustworthy, have an eye for detail, have integrity to complete tasks to the standard of cleanliness required, 

and be motivated to work quickly and thoroughly.

Cleaning/custodial work experience a plus.

Must be able to communicate with supervisor/assistant while working (may use just one earbud, if desired).

Duties and responsibilities

Duties will include working with chemicals and machines Sunday-Friday to clean rooms, lobbies, hallways, bathrooms, floors, stairs, windows, appliances, and carpets all over the building.

We also "deep clean" all vacating dorm rooms and apartments at University Towers, as well as repeatedly clean and set up guestrooms all year long.  We process much laundry on a regular basis.  Due to the nature of guests and visiting large groups, our needs are not completely predictable and tasks can flucuate greatly based on need. 


Supervisory responsibilities

Occassionally will be asked to help new students learn/perform jobs. 

Possible supervisory assignments to be determined, if needed, at a later date.


Must have an eye for cleanliness and detail to notice when something needs more attention than normal, and a willingness to attend to it.

Must be meticulous in communicating to supervisor and whole team that jobs have been completed, either by filling in a posted checklist, or in guest room situations, by marking work complete on the computer, and by using a radio to communicate.

Technical competencies


Interpersonal interactions

Must be comfortable interacting with guests, residents, and staff of the building, working in teams or alone, and taking instruction from other co-workers functioning in a supervisory capacity.

Physical demands

Must be able to move quickly, lift 30 pounds, lift, carry, or fold laundry, push/pull small machines, have full range of motion in all limbs, navigate stairs, and do reasonable physical labor through-out entire shift.

Work environment

We cannot negatively impact our guests, residents, or business  conducted in the lobby when we clean and run machines. Some duties will be time-sensitive for that reason. Otherwise we allow for flexibility in scheduling.
