The cleaning staff are here to keep halls clean and tidy, but this service does not absolve you of your own responsibility for the upkeep and cleanliness of your bedroom, shower-room, flat corridor and kitchen. On this page you will find all the information to help you make this possible.

Room cleaning rota

The cleaning timetable for your bedroom is on display in your hall and in the tabs below. Please check the timetable carefully and familiarise yourself with the dates that your bedroom will be cleaned. If you prevent access to your room on your scheduled cleaning day, cleaning staff will only attend again on the next scheduled cleaning day for your room.

Room inspections

To ensure that you are looking after your bedroom in our halls, we conduct formal room inspections during term time.
 

During formal room inspections, Hall Staff will check your bedroom and any en-suite facilities for damages, health and safety issues (such as electrical hazards), cleanliness and excessive accumulation of rubbish. 

You will be notified in advance as to when inspections will take place outside your room cleaning days. We will always give you at least 7 days’ notice prior to the inspections and we will always endeavour to avoid sensitive times such as during busy exam periods. You do not have to be present in your room while the inspection is taking place. Visits will only be conducted between 10.00 and 16.00 Monday to Friday. 

Before the inspection, you should ensure that all areas are clean and tidy and that any defects are reported directly to your Hall Supervisor or via our reporting problems page.

Where levels of cleanliness do not meet acceptable standards you will be advised of the steps you should take to improve and the date of a re-inspection. If inspections reveal a breach of your accommodation agreement you will normally be given a reasonable opportunity to put things right. If you fail to rectify matters that have been drawn to your attention, or if the level of cleanliness and damages within your room is persistently not of an acceptable standard, a charge will be added to your invoice at the end of term.
