Campus Cleaning

Facilities Management (cleaning services)

The team of circa 180 cleaning staff provide a 24/7, 365 day a year cleaning service across both campus in support of academic building and student accommodation

The University of Exeter’s Cleaning Teams provide a range of cleaning services across both our Exeter campuses and University owned and managed accommodation in the city.

All staff are qualified and trained to BICSc (British Institute of Cleaning Science) standards and follow their guidance on cleaning. 

We support staff and students in their day-to-day work and life around Campuses, as well as providing additional support for external events taking place on site.
