Keeping MIT Shining


Cleaning Requests related to COVID-19
To protect against bacteria and viruses, our custodial staff uses Morning Mist disinfecting cleaning solution, approved by the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2. Students, faculty, and staff living and/or working on campus receive routine testing for COVID-19 at MIT Medical. If an individual tests positive for COVID-19, MIT Medical conducts contact tracing and notifies both EHS and the Custodial Services team (via Marty O’Brien, senior manager of Campus Services) of any spaces on campus that might require additional cleaning. In most cases, the regular cleaning of spaces has already occurred, and no additional cleaning is required.

Questions regarding COVID-19 cleaning services may be directed to Marty O’Brien, senior manager of Campus Services, via email or phone (office 617-253-6728, cell 617-593-8997). If you have questions related to possible exposure to COVID-19, visit the MIT Medical site.

The Custodial Services group works to maintain a high level of cleanliness throughout MIT to support a comfortable learning environment. Custodians work round-the-clock shifts to minimize inconvenience while providing efficient, services to classrooms, labs, offices, and public spaces. Each team's mission is to treat customers in a courteous, professional manner and to provide timely responses to special requests and emergencies.
