Cleaning & Maintenance for Faculty & Staff

Knight Center Schedule

For Knight Center cleaning and maintenance, call the Knight Center front desk at 314-933-9400.

Knight, Bauer, and Simon Halls Schedule

Maintenance repairs should be requested through General Services who will arrange for completion. Requests are scheduled based on urgency thus non-urgent requests may take a day or two to complete because of the heavy volume of requests received by University maintenance personnel. The cost for special requests will be charged to departments or STAR accounts via the Accounting Information System (AIS).

Emergency Maintenance

From 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, General Services is available for assistance. For emergencies during business hours, please call the General Services cell phone 314-503-0422. This cell phone number should only be called for emergencies. Please use the email (services@olin.wustl.edu) or voice mail whenever possible. After 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday or Sunday, emergency maintenance services (Millbrook facility) are available by calling 314-935-5544. The call will automatically be switched to an on-call mechanic.


Office cleaning (trash & recycle removal and vacuuming) is provided by Aramark staff six times per month. Reception areas and public areas are cleaned and have trash removed five times per week. Faculty or staff members who need waste baskets emptied more frequently may place trash cans outside their offices for removal. Waste baskets placed in the hallways will be emptied between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. Sunday through Thursday night. Desk and surface areas are not touched by cleaning employees.

To arrange for more thorough cleaning, contact General Services at services@olin.wustl.edu. Fees, if any, for additional cleaning will be charged to STAR or Department accounts.


Recycling bins will be emptied by Aramark custodians on Thursday of each week. Contact General Services if you would like to have an individual recycling container placed in your office. Please empty individual containers into the large containers in your designated area.

Shredding Services

Shredders are located in Faculty Support offices in Simon, Knight, and Bauer Halls and a shredding box is located in Simon Hall, Room 242. You may also contact General Services and they will provide you with a Shred It bag for your materials.
