The Center for the Built Environment and Infrastructure Studies (CBEIS), a LEED certified building, is a 126,000 GSF shared facility for academic engineering and design programs at Morgan State University. The Center houses research and instructional programs for the School of Architecture and Planning and School of Engineering's Civil Engineering, Transportation Studies, and National Transportation Center (NTC).
As stewards of the built environment, it is important that we set an example and share the responsibility of taking care of our building. Keeping a well maintained environment is healthy - physically, mentally, and socially.

The University is committed to developing a "green cleaning" program for all housekeeping practices in CBEIS. Cleaning methods established in the University's housekeeping policy emphasize the removal of indoor pollutants while maintaining a safe, healthy environment for all workers and building occupants.
Keeping CBEIS and its surrounding's clean is everyone's responsibility. Students, faculty, and staff are expected to clean up after themselves at all times. To help keep the spaces clean, eating and drinking is prohibited in the classrooms, labs, and seminar rooms. There are numerous trash cans and recycle bins strategically located throughout the building for trash disposal. Please report any need for trash pickup or cleaning needs to the Dean's Office (CBEIS 104).
Please report any building maintenance issues (lighting, heating/cooling, jammed locker, card swipe access, etc.) to the Dean's Office (CBEIS 104) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The safety of the students, faculty, and staff is the highest priority for the School of Architecture and Planning. With Morgan State University being an open campus, it is imperative for the health, welfare and safety of students, faculty, and staff that everyone complies with the building's hour of operations.
For any emergencies, there will be an on-duty security guard Sunday - Thursday from 6:00 pm - 2:00 am at the information desk or contact University Police at 443-885-3103. Please report any suspicious behavior throughout the building to the Dean's Office (CBEIS 104) or email at email@example.com.
