Building Access for Employees

According to the March 26, 2020, communication from Dan Larson, OSU's Coronavirus Coordinator, "accessing space in any OSU building by OSU employees is prohibited, unless approved by your dean, vice president or vice provost, and is in support of a designated on-site critical function." Certain buildings remain open to support remote teaching and learning and to support the on-campus student population; however, access to these buildings is limited to critical functions.

Employees should check with their supervisor to confirm whether they are expected to come on-site to perform a critical function.


Key Shop

The Key Shop is open its normal hours Monday - Friday, 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The Key Shop is staffed during this time, but the door is locked to avoid the congestion of people. Please knock on the door to alert staff, who will let you into the shop.

Custodial Services

Facilities Services is committed to maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness across the Corvallis campus facilities. Facilities Services and ABM, our custodial services contractor, are taking steps to reduce the possibility of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on the Corvallis campus. At this time, ABM staff have adopted a specialized cleaning protocol due to reduced use of classrooms and offices on the Corvallis campus. Measures include:

  • Enhanced cleaning of high touch point areas, including doorknobs, light switches, telephones, elevator buttons, etc.
  • Sterilizing classrooms, including a thorough cleaning of all tables and chairs.
  • Cleaning interior windows and floors.
  • Testing and replacing electrical lighting bulbs.

As of January 30, 2020, ABM implemented an enhanced daily cleaning program and trained all staff on the enhanced levels of cleaning processes. ABM is using EPA-registered cleaners and disinfectants for frequently-touched surfaces (including doorknobs, light switches, telephones, elevator buttons, etc). ABM has also evaluated task frequency and has added frequency. 

Contact your Building Manager if you have any questions or concerns about your facility.
