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:

UAF has a sustainable model dorm room housed in Moore Hall. It features organic bedding, air cleaning plants (succulents), reusable eating utensils and dishes, a crock pot and rice cooker, eco clamshell and reusable mug/water bottle for take out, a table top water filter, and four recycling bags (plastic, cans, glass and paper).

This dorm is not lived in by students though it is accessible during normal hours year around, it is mainly used to show off what a dorm room can be for perspective students. UAF feels that it would be a serious invasion of privacy to impose model standards and constant viewing upon a studying student.
