Add New Suggestion
(Mar 31/16) I am consistently surprised by how dirty HSL is, regardless of the time of day. I find garbage on the floor, hair in the cubicles, spilt drinks, used toilet paper on the bathroom floor. Its just disgusting. Students are of course part of the problem. Maybe posters in the cubicles reminding people to pick up after themselves would be helpful. But I am very doubtful that HSL is being cleaned regularly, especially the cubicles and washrooms.
Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns. The Library has been working closely with housekeeping and facilities management in an attempt to address these issues. Last Thursday (March 31st) all of the public washrooms were steam cleaned. We are now reviewing housekeeping’s cleaning schedule to see if they can prioritize other areas of concern (i.e. garbage removal & wiping down the study carrels and tables). The Health Sciences Library has over 50,000 visitors each month, making us one of the busiest spaces on campus. Keeping up with cleaning demands has been challenging, but we are committed to addressing the issue.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or comments. (Apr 5/16)
