    I think a few screenshots would help illustrate what the problem is.

    I would check the camera clipping distance (near and far plane values). For the ceiling, it may be that in Maya it's rendered double sided but in Unity it's culling it from the direction you're looking at it.

    Coqui frogs the problem is the same way I made the floor is the same way I made the ceiling but the floor shows up but not the ceiling for some reason and I'm only getting this blue view in game play mode in unity but in the top camera view everything is there so strange!!!

    The blue color is the default camera background, so that essentially means you're not rendering anything here.

    I think Frogs is right, the surfaces are probably facing away from the camera. It is common for 3D tools like Maya to render both sides of a wall, but in Unity we only render the front. Try opening your model in maya and flip the ceiling and then import it back into Unity. That should solve the problem.
