Cleaning Schedule

Campus

Goldsmith Hall and Botany Bay - Residents are responsible for cleaning their own rooms/apartment in these areas. Housekeeping clean the stairways and entrance halls.

Pearse Street and GMB - Residents are responsible for cleaning their bedrooms and bathrooms while the communal kitchen and general areas are cleaned by the Housekeeping staff.

Front Square and New Square - Residents are responsible for cleaning their bedrooms and any other areas they have access to. Communal bathrooms or kitchens are serviced by the Housekeeping staff.

Ultimately it is the responsibility of the residents who have access to communal kitchens to ensure that they are kept in a clean condition and ensure that the rubbish is taken out on a regular basis.

Notices are posted in each residential area outlining when and how residents can get access to vacuums. It is important not to retain the vacuum in your room for longer than is necessary as there is a limited number and demand for their use can be high, particularly during periods of room inspections. Should you require vacuum bags, contact the Housekeeping Office at extn. 3932.

Trinity Hall

Any queries or problems in regard to Housekeeping should be addressed to the Operations Manager who is located in the Accommodation Office and can be contacted from 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Thursday and 9.00am to 4.00pm Friday.

Modern Accommodation - In all modern accommodation, residents are responsible for cleaning their own rooms and shared common areas within the apartment. The Housekeeping Department will clean the stairs and entrance halls only.

Cunningham House - Residents of Cunningham House are responsible for cleaning their bedrooms and any other areas that they have access to, except where there are communal bathrooms or kitchens. Housekeeping will clean communal bathroom facilities on a daily basis (Monday to Friday) while the kitchens will be given a light cleaning. This cleaning will not include the washing of crockery or cookware. Ultimately it is the responsibility of the residents who have access to communal kitchens to ensure they are kept in a clean condition and ensure that the rubbish is taken out on a regular basis.

It is recommended that you clean your room regularly rather than letting it get really dirty so that it then needs a major clean up. If you are living in shared accommodation it is an idea to set up a cleaning rota. Do not bring bicycles into residences as it is not permitted under the College regulations. Here are some hints and tips on cleaning which may be helpful.
