We work to provide a clean and safe environment for our campus community to learn and work in.

We use standards set by the Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers (APPA) to set custodial tasks and frequencies. Our normal operations cover daytime, afternoon and evening shifts to make sure the 242,000 m2 (2,604,000 ft2) of occupied space is cleaned regularly at all of our campuses.


BCIT complies with APPA cleaning standards and operates under the LEED Green Cleaning program.
