 Facilities 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.


What Do Custodians Do?

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.
Custodians also:

    • Assist in emergency response (power outages, floods, etc.)
    • Move furniture and equipment
    • Set up facilities for non-classroom activities that enrich the college experience for our students, including student activities, board meetings, career fairs.
    • Set up and provide support for outside organizations who rent our facilities
    • Act as campus "ambassadors,” pointing lost students and teachers in the direction of their classrooms during those first weeks of every semester
