KEEPING CAMPUS OPERABLE AND CLEAN
Our maintenance and custodial teams work around the clock to ensure that all facilities on our Morningside and Manhattanville campuses are fully functional, safe and hygienic. The maintenance team performs ongoing renovations of common spaces, classrooms, restrooms, and grounds while providing services from carpentry and locksmiths to painting and more. The custodial team provides upkeep and cleaning services throughout academic and administrative buildings and undergraduate residence halls.
