Physical Plant and Custodial Services Charges

The Facilities Services Department is a Trinity University service department and will not normally charge for its services. However, it will be reimbursed for:

  • Labor and materials for any non-University sponsored event for which admission is charged, regardless of when the event is held.
  • Labor and materials for all other events, regardless of when they are held, for which there is a contractual agreement for use of the University facilities by an outside organization, even if admission is not to be charged. Normally, this would include all events for which services are requested by an off-campus requester working with the Office of University Communications or the Office of Conferences and Special Programs to handle all event details.
  • Materials for any in-house work performed by the Facilities Services Department for departments which is not routine or preventive maintenance or funded by capital projects. Examples of this type of reimbursable service are the constructions of book shelves and/or the installation of additional electrical receptacles.
  • Total contract cost for work performed for a department which is not routine or preventive maintenance or funded by a capital project, when the work is beyond the in-house capability of the Facilities Services Department. An example is the installation of carpet in a previously un-carpeted area (repair of carpet is routine maintenance).
  • Labor and materials for damages within residence halls, such as vandalism of elevators, recharging of fire extinguishers, abuse of fire alarm or smoke detection systems, replacement of damaged or missing signs and replacement of keys, etc.

Trinity University's custodial contractor is required by contract to provide specific custodial services for designated areas at a fixed price per month. The company is authorized additional compensation for:

  • Cleaning areas not specified in the contract, or cleaning specified areas at a greater frequency than called for in the contract.
  • Extra cleaning services for special events for which there is less than seven (7) days prior notification.
  • Required work on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
  • Cleaning services for Laurie Auditorium after events for which admission is charged.
