Imagine mowing this yard and washing these windows

Keeping Gustavus looking good is important to recruiting new students, hosting off-campus groups, and giving current students a sense of pride for their home away from home. Maintaining a campus of 340 acres and more than 30 buildings is no small task. Gustavus employs 70 custodians, 33 physical plant workers, plus a staff of students. These people mow the grass, trim the bushes and trees, wash windows and floors, build and install cabinets, plant flowers, clean bathrooms, install and fix plumbing, do all the painting, shovel the snow, set up for events, remove the garbage, fix college-owned vehicles, and much more.
