We provide set-up support for campus events. Contact us at least three business days prior to your event to schedule the setup of tables, chairs, trash/recycling bins, and more.
Any changes to your request must be made 24 hours in advance for weekday events and by 4 P.M. the Thursday prior to a weekend event.

Pest management includes the interior management of animals, insects, and rodents.
Environmental and Custodial Services provides campus interior pest control via an outside contractor and we have an EPA/Nebraska certified license applicator on staff. Exterior pest management is provided through Landscape Services.
We use an integrated pest management control program to reduce negative human and environmental impacts. We ask that all food and drink materials in office areas be kept in sealed metal containers to increase the effectiveness of our pest management program.
Scheduled preventive treatments are applied during weekends, breaks, and holiday closures.
