Building cleanings and ventilation


Prior to and during the fall term, UCLA Facilities Management will perform thorough cleanings and disinfection of all high-use common areas, restrooms and public spaces throughout campus — including office common areas and restrooms. Details on these cleanings is available here (PDF).

For the cleaning of individual offices, units and departments can purchase cleaning packages through Facilities Management by submitting a facilities service request (please include “COVID” in the FAU project description).

Facilities Management has also installed hand sanitizer stations throughout campus. Individual departments are responsible for purchasing their own sanitizer.


UCLA Facilities Management has evaluated all building ventilation systems on campus; the great majority of them already meet industry recommendations for COVID-19 air exchanges and filtration. Facilities Management has also supplied portable HEPA air purifiers to many offices and classrooms in order to meet industry standards — among them, single occupancy offices without dedicated ventilation, multiple occupancy offices, conference rooms, and general assignment and departmental classrooms.

Managers and supervisors can still request a building ventilation assessment by Facilities Management to determine whether they need an air purifier or not.

A website has been created that lists the buildings that do not yet meet the recommendations and should be reviewed by managers and supervisors.
