Public hygiene is always our first and foremost concern in the Undergraduate Halls. We have a professional and helpful Cleaning Team to maintain the cleanliness and hygiene every day.
General cleaning is carried out in all communal areas daily while washrooms of student bedrooms cleaned once a week. Pest control for communal areas and student bedrooms will also be conducted on a regular and need basis. A washroom cleaning schedule is posted on each floor. If there are any questions relating to cleaning, please report to us through the University Cyber Port System (BUniPort) [U-Life > Hall Residence].
Residents are responsible for the cleanliness and hygiene of their rooms. Cleaning utensils are available outside the Floor Lounge on each floor. Rubbish bags are provided for each Unit every month and can be collected in the Security Counter. Residents should put all rubbish in rubbish bag, tie it up properly and dispose of it in the trash chute on each floor or in the rubbish bin in the Lounges for rubbish of larger size.
If you bring in any cutleries and Food trays from the BU Fiesta, you must return them to the BU Fiesta immediately after your meal. Leftover food in the bedroom or in the Lounge will cause serious hygiene problems.
