Each housekeeper in the residence halls has a student assistant for the summer. The summer housekeeper assistant works alongside their housekeeper to move furniture, strip and wax floors, clean windows, and other general cleaning tasks around the hall.

Facility Specialist Assistant (FSA):The Facilities Specialist Assistant works with the Facilities Specialist in a preventative maintenance capacity.  Duties include minor electrical work, maintenance of equipment, installation of air conditioners, removal of light fixtures, vacuuming of room and bathroom vent units, and other assignments as deemed necessary.  Previous maintenance experience helpful, but not necessary.

Work Crew (WC): Summer is a major time for repairs and renovations to residence hall facilities, and an integral part of those activities is the work crew. Their responsibilities include all painting of residence hall rooms and common areas, moving new and old furniture as well as minor housekeeping tasks as needed around campus.
