ER-T2-3: Model Room in a Residence Hall
Program Lead-Outreach and Engagement
Office of Sustainability
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:
The Office of Sustainability partnered with Residence Services to transform a traditional dorm room into a sustainable living space in Lister Hall Residence. The changes were captured into a virtual room that is housed online and available to students 24 hours a day. The model sustainable living space encourages students moving into their new spaces to consider the more sustainable options available to them. It also shows them how easy it is to consider the environment and their community by making simple choices to improve the sustainability of their living space. The virtual room includes descriptive photos and 20 tips. The sustainable dorm room is promoted during move-in periods.
