The servitorial section is divided into areas run by Senior Janitors assisted by Janitors. They provide a variety of services within buildings across the University, these include:
- the opening and closing of buildings
- setting up rooms for lectures, tutorials and meetings
- small equipment and furniture moved within and between buildings
Any of these services can be requested by contacting the relevant Senior Janitor above.
University Servitors carry out all uniformed ceremonial duties within the University.
During graduations, the Bedelus and Staff Bearer take part in the procession and invite graduates to approach the Principal to have their degree conferred. Additional Servitors are there to ensure guests are guided to their required seats for the ceremony.
