Cleaning Room and Trash Removal
Do not wait until the last minute to clean your room. Garbage bags and other cleaning materials may be obtained on a limited basis from your building housekeeping staff or from Facilities by calling (717) 245-1212 to assist you in this process. The following steps are suggested to clean your room prior to checking out of your residence:

  • Remove all personal items – including rugs - from your room prior to your check out (make sure to check all desk and bureau drawers for overlooked items)
  • Sweep/vacuum floors; mopping where necessary
  • Lock all windows and pull down blinds to the first pane
  • Take all trash directly to the appropriate locations. Do not leave trash in the hallways. All rooms not properly cleaned may be assessed a room cleaning charge. You may also be charged for sweeping trash into the hallways.

Note: Non-college furniture that is left behind will be removed by Facilities Management and the student account will be billed a removal fee.
