UI Facilities Management FM@YourService  University of Iowa Facilities Management portal for reporting maintenance issues, ordering keys, project requests and quotes.  Contact 335-5071 in the event of a facilities emergency. 

Custodial Services  Common space areas such as copy rooms, conference rooms, classrooms, restrooms, hallways and lobbies are cleaned (vacuumed, floors mopped and trash disposed of) on a daily basis Monday-Friday.  Labs are cleaned (floors mopped and trash disposed of) two times per week.  Currently cleaning services to offices, administrative spaces, and cubicles are suspended until Spring 2022.  This allows custodial staff to concentrate extra efforts towards sanitizing touch-points and refilling sanitation stations.  Occupants can dispose of trash by placing tied trash bag outside of office or lab in hallway. Excess recycling should be taken to large recycling bins located in central locations.  To request a room be vacuumed, or other custodial service questions please put through a maintenance request via the FM@YourService portal
