Custodial Services


Our mission is to provide an environment for learning and discovery at the University of Denver.   As professional employees, we support Denver University’s mission by providing quality services and the management of physical assets, and the stewardship of resources in accordance with University policies, values, regulatory requirements, and best practice standards.   


One of the University's stated goals is to achieve financial, operational, human, and environmental resource sustainability.  We will fulfill our mission while using environmentally responsible cleaning products, equipment, and sustainable processes.  Custodial Services will be recognized for providing effective, economical and innovative facilities services and solutions through people and systems, which are accessible, friendly and responsive.
