Sanitation and Cleanliness

Residence

Residence students are responsible for cleaning their own rooms and bathrooms and should aid in the cleaning of the hallways and lounges. Please take your personal garbage to the large garbage bins outdoors rather than emptying your garbage into the lounge garbage cans, which causes them to quickly overflow. Due to fire regulations and issues of cleanliness, personal items cannot be left in hallways, lounges, or laundry rooms. Personal items left in these areas will be confiscated immediately and then donated to charity after a period of one week if unclaimed.

Food Disposal

Please make every effort to dispose of food in the garbage containers rather than in the sink. Much inconvenience has resulted in the past over plugged drains.

Personal and Communal Spaces

Students are responsible for and expected to clean their own rooms, bathrooms and living spaces and should aid in the cleaning of hallways and lounges. Personal garbage can be disposed of in the large garbage bins outdoors. Due to fire regulations and issues of cleanliness, personal items cannot be left in hallways, lounges or laundry rooms. Personal items left in these areas will be confiscated immediately and donated to charity after one week if unclaimed. Vacuum cleaners are located in each residence hall for student use, however, vacuuming should be done outside of designated quiet hours. Providence custodial staff will vacuum the main lounges periodically and at that time have priority to the vacuums. There are coin-operated laundry facilities located in all residence halls. Please notify Midland of any problems at the phone number located on the machines. Food must be disposed of in the garbage containers rather than in the sink to avoid the inconvenience and hassle of clogged drains.
