Welcome to the Facilities & Grounds Department
The Facilities Department ensures a safe, effective and inspiring physical environment that supports and enhances teaching and learning at San Jose City College. We provide quality, professional and responsive custodial and grounds services to the college and visitors.
San Jose City College Custodians clean over 500,000 square feet of space each day. This includes classrooms, offices, restrooms, laboratories, stairways, corridors, gymnasium, locker rooms, and common areas.
Our Grounds staff is responsible for planned improvements and routine maintenance of outdoor spaces including pruning, fertilizing, mowing, cleaning and keeping the grounds free of litter and graffiti.
Groundskeepers specialize in irrigation, chemical applications and tree maintenance. They take pride in tending the highly manicured lawns, perennial plantings and color variations that accent the campus creating a pleasing and safe environment.
