FGCU contracts with cleaning service provider, Grupo Eulen/USSI Clean. Grupo Eulen/USSI is certified as a (OS1) ® Green Certified Program, requiring and implementing employee training through a combination of continuing on-the-job training and formalized class-room sessions which helps Grupo Eulen/USSI employees upgrade their skills on a regular basis.
Established as a means to communicate the door-locking preferences for each area, the custodial contractor supplies and uses a color-coded door dot system. Every door will have a color-coded dot on the top left corner of the door frame. Departments do not supply the door dots. Designated department primary and secondary contacts should discuss locking preferences with faculty and staff and provide the information to the Work Management Center. Submit, in any format, a list of the room numbers in the department's assigned area and note the color dot choice.
The door dot System is one of many processes incorporated in USSI’s procedures that will enhance security as well as efficiency. After implementation, if you find the dot does not agree with your locking choice or the dot needs to be updated, please feel free to email Work Management at email@example.com so we can make the appropriate changes.
If we do not hear from you about a specific door or doors, we will default to the RED DOT or “door to be closed and locked after cleaning."

You have volunteers who come pick up the receptacles from the Campus Support Complex-Warehouse. At the end of the event, volunteers handle the trash to the nearest dumpster and return the receptacles clean and empty at the same location where picked up. In this case, this is a service and there are no charges. Campus Support is building 10 on the campus map.
You have no volunteers. In this case the custodial crew will deliver the receptacles, monitor the trash during the event and return them at the end of the event. This is considered a chargeback and we will need budget approval in order to schedule the services.
Please contact WMC by email or phone if scheduling an event on campus to discuss or request services, in order to provide a quote and accommodate your request in a timely manner.
Reach out to WMC to request bilingual orange "Waste" stickers and green "Recycling" stickers to use for items left out for pick-up. WMC also has "Do not Clean" door tags in stock. Otherwise, feel free to download and print any of the following signs. Some are bilingual.
Pest control services for the University are contracted to a private firm, which is on campus every Friday.
The University has developed a contractual pest control service employing a method called "integrated pest management". It provides the large majority of its services on the exterior of the facility with the intent of preventing pest entry. When needed, internal controls will use baiting and spraying. Together, the process limits occupant exposure to pesticides, while maintaining a pest controlled environment.
Upon occasion, (mostly due to food and drinks being consumed in office and classroom areas) interior service is needed. The pest control contractor is on campus every Friday, unless holiday schedules dictate otherwise. If additional services are needed, a Customer Request requesting special attention must be sent to the Work Management Center, and must include a building, room #, and contact information.
Immediate service is not offered. If your area is in need of immediate pest control, please contact Work Management, and you may obtain a pest control spray to use until further treatment is scheduled on designated days.
In case of emergencies, e.g. fire ants, please contact the Work Management Center at 590-1370 with a building and room location.
