Facilities Services works to maintain a campus built environment that is conducive to teaching, learning and research. We strive to continuously improve the campus in partnership with all members of the campus community.

How UCB Buildings Are Currently Being Cleaned and Disinfected (Update as of March 12, 2020)

*Please visit the website frequently for the most updated information*

We in Facilities Services at UC Berkeley are closely monitoring the latest updates and guidelines about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are working closely with campus leadership to put preventative measures in place.

These measures currently include:

  • Facilities Services is now using Environmental Health & Safety approved chemical disinfectants to sanitize and disinfect high touch point areas on a daily basis. Facilities Services staff are trained on how to properly apply it. 

  • The priority at this time is to sanitize and disinfect high touch point areas in public and high-traffic areas.  High touch point areas include but are not limited to: classroom student and instructor desks and podiums, conference room tables and armrests on chairs, door handles, drinking fountains, elevator call buttons and elevator panels, furniture in public spaces, handrails for stairs, light switches, braille signage, etc.

  • All restrooms are sanitized and disinfected on a daily basis.

  • Libraries are wiped down and sanitized at a minimum of 3 times a week.

  • High touch point areas in classrooms are sanitized daily. 

  • Hand sanitizer stands have been placed throughout campus in public, high-traffic locations and will be refilled as supplies become available.  Please do not move these stands from where Facilities Services has placed them. If they are empty or damaged, please report the specific location to ucbcustodial@lists.berkeley.edu

  • Please note that there is currently a nation-wide shortage of disinfecting and sanitizing supplies and that we are doing our best given the current circumstances.
