As introduced in MSU’s Roadmap for Fall 2020, this fall semester every student, faculty member and staff member at MSU will receive a Clean ‘Cat Kit. This personal sanitation tool will help you take personal action to protect yourselves. These kits should be used to sanitize areas you use during the day, such as podiums, desks and seats in classrooms, meeting rooms and collaboration spaces.

Each Clean ‘Cat Kit will include:

  • A Bobcat cloth mask.
  • A refillable hand sanitizer.
  • A refillable disinfectant spray bottle.
  • Three microfiber cloths.

Clean ‘Cat Kits are just one additional tool, in combination with multiple other initiatives, that enables each of us to continue doing our part in providing and promoting a safe learning and working environment for ourselves and our fellow Bobcats.

Refill Stations

To facilitate access to hand-sanitizer gel and disinfectant spray, campus hand-sanitizer refill stations will be set up around campus in various common areas in all buildings. This interactive map will let you easily locate these stations, and students using the refill stations will earn ChampChange points.

Getting a Kit

Students living in the residence halls will receive a kit in their room when they arrive to campus. For students who commute to campus, outdoor tents will be set up Aug. 17-19 from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the following pickup locations:

  • On the lawn between Montana Hall and Hamilton Hall
  • At the "Noodle" Wind Arc sculpture at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Grant Street
  • On the corner of 11th Avenue and Grant Street
  • At Linfield Hall along 11th Avenue

Beginning Aug. 20, the MSU Bookstore will also serve as a pickup station for kits. Students who receive a kit will be registered for 10,000 ChampChange points and entered into a prize raffle. 

For employees

Deans and department heads should coordinate with their units and provide University Services with the quantity needed to supply all their faculty and staff with one Clean ‘Cat Kit for personal use. Please use the request form to place an order.


If you have any questions, please email the Clean ’Cats team. Additional information about the kits is available from University Services' COVID-19 Facilities Resources page.
