Green Living


Building 1516 opened this fall with 500 environmentally conscious upperclassmen as residents. The new East Campus residence hall is the first “green” residential hall on campus and it uses more than high-efficiency showers to remind students of the importance of environmental protection. The building is equipped with an indoor bike storage area, double-paned windows and a gray-water system that recycles and treats shower and sink water for use in toilets.  The building has laundry and kitchen facilities as well as study rooms.
