  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Floor care and restoration
  • Stocking restroom and sanitizing supplies
  • Specialty cleaning services
  • Pest management
  • Preventing indoor slip and fall incidents
  • Window washing
  • Event support
  • Snow removal at building entryways

Cleaning for Health

Based on what we know about the way COVID-19 spreads, the most effective strategies limit airborne exposure, such as wearing face coverings and maintaining social distancing. Current research indicates that surfaces are not the main way that the virus spreads, but may contribute if one touches a surface and then touches their face or eyes. Visit the Cleaning for Health page for more details.


Custodial Service Teams are responsible for most buildings on campus, with the exceptions noted below.

  • Athletics Groundskeepers: Lansing Champman Rink, Towne Field House, Chaffee Tennis House
  • Dining Services: Dining halls, dining hall restrooms, kitchens
  • Outside Companies: For any questions or concerns about contracted services such as decontamination services, specialty cleaning, routine cleaning (Williams College Children’s Center, 63 Spring Street), please contact Dan Levering
