Does the institution have an occupied, formally designated model room in a residence hall that is open to students during regular hours and demonstrates sustainable living principles?:

A brief description of the model room:

Virtual Room

As part of Campus Metabolism, an online Virtual Room displays the energy consumption of common dorm electronics. Students can explore the room any time and they can view the impact and measure of their energy use in their dorm rooms.

Also, Arizona State University Housing maintains model residence hall rooms on all four of its campuses, eight rooms in total. To furnish the spaces, University Housing partners with IKEA, an international retailer known for its dedication to development of sustainable practices and products. University Housing also provides space within the rooms for third-party contracted partners to promote products and services for students. One such service is drinking water delivery, which was implemented in an effort to reduce the number of single-serving plastic water bottles on campus.
