Washroom cleaning

Clean the student washrooms more often!! (more than once a day)

Thank you very much for your alert.  You may be surprised to find out that at the downtown library, the regular university cleaning staff look after the washrooms from early morning until 1:00 pm.  In the afternoons and evenings, the Webster Library pays for extra cleaning and finally, a night crew comes in at around midnight.  At the Vanier Library, at Loyola, there is a night crew during weeknights and extra washroom cleaning once during the day.  As of next weekend, the Vanier Library will have an additional crew during the day.

The Libraries are very busy places and sometimes things happen that are out of our control (such as flooded toilets).  However, I appreciate you writing in to let us know.  If you notice a need for cleaning or repair on campus, you may call Facilities Management’s Service Centre at 514-848-2424, ext. 2400.

    If the washrooms are that bad, I would say it reflects poorly on the students and their personal hygiene practices first and foremost. Maybe students should be a bit cleaner.

    Anonymous 4 beat me to my comment. I have personally witnessed many bathroom users practices of not cleaning up their watery messes on the counters. What is so hard about washing your hands without getting everything wet in the process? I’ll be kind to the readers and not talk about other messes…

    I agree the washrooms are nasty. Might I suggest however that the reason might not be entirely due to Concordia staff and students, but to others who come in just to use the washrooms ?
    I understand there is a cost, but toilets that auto flush would probably help.
