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:

CSU has three model dorm rooms, each in a different hall, which are open to students and visitors year round. Model room tours emphasize green living on campus and include “Living Green at CSU” fliers available in the model rooms. These fliers encourage students to buy Energy Star appliances, use power strips in their rooms to reduce electricity consumption, bring a bike to campus, etc.

Additionally, there is an interactive model green room which students can tour online. http://www.housing.colostate.edu/living-green
